An assessment of the communicability of the International Joint Commission ecosystem indicators and metrics


The IJC identified a suite of 16 ecosystem indicators composed of 41 metrics to assess progress towards achieving the objectives of the 2012 GLWQA. In April 2014, the IJC asked the SAB - Science Priority Committee (SPC) to identify a smaller set of indicators and metrics from this existing set that could be the focus of public communications. The SPC accepted the challenge and established a goal for the project to provide a comparative assessment of the current communicability of the existing set of indicators and metrics to identify a smaller subset that could be the focus of the IJC’s 2017 Triennial Assessment of Progress (TAP) report.
