The purpose of the project "Sustainable development indicators in China" was to strengthen policy formulation and governance through developing indicators of social and environmental sustainability in China.
The project developed a set of indicators of sustainable development that merges traditional sustainability indicators with insights derived from the Nordic model.
It brought together a research team from Chinese Academy for Science and Technology for Development (CASTED), Fafo and Statistics Norway.
Ultimately, the project constructed a set of indicators which will be published regularly in China by CASTED on the webpage of China Sustainable Wellbeing Index - SWI
