STEP 5


Monitoring and Evaluation

Overview

Objective

The objective of this final step is to create a coherent monitoring system. Existing green recovery monitoring tools provide an interesting basis for identifying indicators (and key data to collect) through data points that can allow comparison of content and performance among recovery plans from different regions and countries.

Benefits

Building a system of indicators to track the impacts of the actions and adapt them will contribute to continuous improvement and ensure an ongoing positive learning process. In particular, identifying the measures’ effectiveness, timeliness and progress will help adjust policies and (re)allocate resources. Better tracking and evaluation of and communication regarding the green recovery pathway will galvanize the needed political and societal buy-in, while allowing knowledge sharing and enhancing capacities for future reporting.

Outputs/outcome

A consolidated system of indicators that relies on existing metrics and indicators to evaluate the outcomes of green recovery programs.
