Title
Measuring sustainability: Learning from doing.

Author
Bell, Simon
Morse, Stephen

Abstract
This text presents practical advice on how to develop measurements that will work in real-life development contexts. The book describes and analyzes how to derive, validate and apply indicators in the course of an actual development project - in this case, the Mediterranean Action Plan. The authors explain the trade-offs and constraints involved and how to combine the more open-ended and flexible perspectives of sustainability with the linear process and fixed targets of specific projects, demonstrating the pragmatic and reflexive methodology involved.
