Indicators

Earthwatch is actively involved in encouraging the development of indicators of environment and sustainable development, as a way to improve the delivery of information for decision-making.

The call of Agenda 21 for indicators of sustainable development led to a new wave of international action on the development of many kinds of indicators.

Access to important work in this field are available by:
UN organization;
Other organization;
region; or
country.

Below are available some general Earthwatch documents on indicators.
