Agree on indicators and monitoring

Key actions

Agree on the indicators to be used and the appropriate monitoring in place to evaluate the indicators.

  • Relative to the overall objectives of the SAF application, do the identified indicators provide the required information on state and progress?
    • Go through the indicators on your ESAT list and check if these are aligned with the objectives.
    • Go through the indicators on your InSAT list and check if these are aligned with the objectives.
  • List the indicators, the ecosystem service it applies to and the units for the indicator.
  • Evaluate if current monitoring programmes provide the necessary information/data for the indicators. 
  • List the indicators included in InSAT (in the Assessment step) and assess how to include these in the monitoring plan.
  • Adjust current programmes or initiate new. 
  • Consider citizen science if resources for monitoring are limited. 
  • Set up and initiate the monitoring plan.
