Indicators and Monitoring
In 2003, a preliminary set of 70 SD
indicators was presented in the report 'Environmental signals' produced by the
National Centre for the Environment and Sustainable Development (NCESD),
supervised by MEECC. However, as the indicators were a proposal and not all of
them measurable, the implementation of the NSDS was not monitored across all of
them and the indicators were not used nor expanded to cover all the NSDS’s
A new set of indicators has been developed
by the NCESD, in close co-operation with the National Statistics Service, which
take into account the SD indicator set by Eurostat and the needs of reporting
for the renewed NSDS. This set was developed and established in 2008-2009
within a “State
of the Environment” Report produced by NCESD in 2010. The new indicator set was developed after
the EU SDS Implementation Report (2007) has been adopted: it is not integrated
in the old report (2007). The indicators will be utilized from the government
and administrative departments to keep on track.
Indicators are also used in the
Operational Programmes for period 2007-2013 to evaluate the results and impacts
of the Operational Programmes funded by Structural Funds and also EC Life +
Programme. Those include green and employment growth indicators.
