Metrics for Policies for Well-being and Sustainable Development in Latin America and the Caribbean
The European Commission, OECD and its Development Centre and UN ECLAC are joining forces with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to identify the most policy-relevant metrics for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), improving well-being, and leaving no-one behind.
This initiative provides a platform, over 3 years (2018-2021), for political and technical dialogue with statisticians, planning ministries, development cooperation agencies and other policy actors from across the region and the world, aiming to identify top-level indicators and best practice for informing national policy and international cooperation strategies. Key outputs will include conferences on the policy uses of high-level metrics for development and well-being, expert meetings to identify and address data gaps, and a final publication presenting headline indicators, case studies on their policy use, and general results, with the ultimate aim to have more impactful policies and more effective development cooperation strategies centred around people’s well-being. This initiative is being undertaken in the context of the EU Regional Facility for Development in Transition in Latin America and the Caribbean.
