The objective is to provide guidance on the role of indicators in major stages of policymaking, using environmental issues as an illustrative entry point. Section 2 introduces the indicators for environmental issues and targets. Section 3 discusses indicators for environmental policy interventions. Section 4 focuses on indicators that show the impacts of policy interventions on well-being and social equity beyond the environmental realm. Examples of policies and the indicators that can be utilized to evaluate them are presented in Section 5. Data needs and capacity-building issues are highlighted in Section 6, and the final section points to the next steps that could facilitate the use of this framework.
