IFEH Sustainability Indicator Initiative ( SII )

Sustainability Indicator Initiative ( SII )

You are invited to include your knowledge, please read the Invitation Letter

A new phase in the Federation's work on indicators which started in 2000 has been launched - and it has been named the Sustainability Indicator Initiative ( SII ).

The backbone of this new initiative will be based on the collaboration between the International Institute of Sustainable Development - IISD and the International Federation on Environmental Health - IFEH.

The IISD has since 1995 been hosting the Compendium on sustainability indicator initiatives. This is a web database of indicators initiatives, Worldwide.

The Compendium will serve as the common database to hold information on indicator initiatives - including the inputs coming as a result of the IFEH sustainability Indicator Initiative.

In 2005 an agreement (MoU) was approved by both IFEH and the IISD:

MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT ON COLLABORATION TO ADVANCE THE USE OF SUSTAINABILITY INDICATORS.

The whole MoU can be seen from here.

An important offset for this agreement was the IFEH Policy no 8 - Declaration on the use of Sustainability Indicators
as well as the IFEH Sustainability Indicator Project.

An IFEH working group has been formed to ensure progress regarding the initiative.

The IFEH SII Working group comprises:

Henning Hansen
President IFEH, ENVINA Denmark

Peter Davey
Vice President IFEH, EHA Australia

Fred O' Brien
Vice president IFEH, CIPHI Canada

Raymond Ellard
EHOA Ireland

Sustainability Indicator Project
In 2000 the IFEH started a project named IFEH Sustainability Indicator Project.
The primary aim of the project was to collect examples from all over the World on how indicators are used in strategic planning and how indicators are used to monitor progress towards a sustainable development.

This former projected was terminated by 1st  of March 2007  and  it has been replaced by the IFEH Sustainabilility Initiative.

The collection of examples to that specific project has by 1st of March 2007 come to an end - but the idea behind the project goes on and has been re-enbursed as a result of our collaboration with the IISD.

The results on the old project can be found from here.
