I read this article today and thought it was a useful resource. In a recent paper in Sustainable Development, Schoenaker et al analyse measurement systems for sustainable development at a country-level. So they compare the SD indicators used by 40 different countries, which include items as diverse as “mineral resources”, “water sanitation” and “smoking prevalence”.
The authors provide a useful review of SD measures developed by the UN since the Brundtland Report (1987) and urge for harmonisation of measurement systems, rather than futher unique frameworks. They note also that developing countries are more focused on basic needs e.g. access to water, and developed countries on more “luxury” indicators e.g. obesity levels. Here’s the link to the article:
