Participatory Assessment of Sustainable Development indicators on good governance from the Civil Society perspective

Objective

PASSO will assess Sustainable Development Indicators on Good Governance and its cross-cutting features from a social perspective. The starting point will be the list of SDIs adopted in the context of the EU Sustainable Development Strategy on the Good Governance Theme. Alternative sets of governance indicators from international initiatives (e.g. United Nations) will be considered too. These sets of indicators will be subject to a participatory assessment process allowing CSOs members to react to RTD performers, statisticians and experts’ views in an iterative manner. A small interdisciplinary International Expert Group (20 members) composed of both CSOs representatives and experts will be created for a first professional review of the existing indicators. The results of the assessment will be submitted for consultation to a Europe-wide large CSOs network. In parallel, national CSOs consultations in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Romania, Spain and The Netherlands will take place. The consultation process will be reiterated within the IEG first and with the public at large at the end so as to ensure that the outcome of PASSO is built on the consensus among all social actors concerned. The aim of the overall assessment will be: • to appraise the relevance and efficiency of the existing indicators from the Civil society perspective in combination with experts views; • to identify gaps and suggest how to fill them, with possible amendments or development of new indicators; • to produce a priority list of such amendments/new developments based on a multi-criteria assessment of their relevance from the CSOs perspective • to draft recommendations for the improvement of SDS/SDIs.
