A follow-on to Sustainability Indicators (1999), this book presents practical advice on developing measurements that will work in real-life development contexts. Describes and analyses how to derive, validate and apply indicators in the course of an actual development project, in this case, the Mediterranean Action Plan. Explains the trade-offs and constraints involved and how to combine the more open-ended and flexible perspectives of sustainability with the linear process and fixed targets of specific projects.
Presents valuable practical advice on how to develop measurements that will work in real-life development contexts.' Natural Resources Journal 'The colourful and reflective presentation of the process - which brought people together in defining their own set of sustainability indicators and helped them apply these indicators in policy making - is the most valuable contribution of the book to the increasing field of works in the indicator business.' Peter Hardi, PhD, Director, Measurement and Indicator Program, International Institute for Sustainable Development
