Towards a Local Sustainability Profile

May 2003
The European Common Indicators is a monitoring initiative focused on sustainability at the local level. A partnership of different organisations and levels are working together, in a joint effort to find comparable data and a better understanding of sustainability in local communities across Europe. Ten common local sustainability indicators were identified through a bottom-up process - these are now being tested. Used in combination with other indicators and other evaluation methods, the European Common Indicators can contribute to a comprehensive local or regional monitoring strategy.

Over 100 local and regional authorities have so far signed the adoption agreement and are now testing the indicators, refining the monitoring initiative based on practical experiences. The Interim Report, assessing the first data submission phase, is now available on this web site. The testing phase runs until the end of 2002. New participants are welcome to join at any stage.

Support services are provided to participating authorities during the testing phase: technical support (scientific expertise, helpdesk, workshops, etc.), methodological development, pilot activities on the Ecological Footprint, good practice collection and exchange, dissemination activities, and evaluation, reporting, recommendations and guidelines.

The report can be downloaded as a pdf file [1MB]: click here
