Arthur Lyon DAHL - Topical Curriculum Vitae on
INDICATORS

I have worked on indicators for more than forty years, starting with indicators relevant to coral reefs in the early 1970s. In the 1980s I developed a set of indicators and indices for islands. After the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 called for indicators of sustainable development, I organized the first UN expert meeting to plan such indicators and helped to design the indicators for the Commission on Sustainable Development, as well as participating in two projects on sustainability indicators for the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE). I was a member of the Consultative Group on Sustainable Development Indicators (CGSDI) in the 1990s that produced the Bellagio Principles and the Dashboard of Sustainability. Other activities have included participating in the development by SOPAC of the Environmental Vulnerability Index, consultant on indices to the World Economic Forum including participating in the revision of the Environmental Sustainability Index (2005) and development of the Environmental Performance Index (2006), and contributing to the development of the Humanitarian Response Index 2007. I was a partner in a EU-funded project between universities and civil society organizations to develop values-based indicators of education for sustainable development (2008-11), and most recently a consultant to the World Bank on the design of new indicators of development (2012), and of a Business Environment for Energy Index (2013). I am now preparing reviews of some of this experience, especially on indicators of sustainability.
