Tools for a green, notably circular economy

Results Chain and Indicators

The Green Economy Sector Indicator Guidance presents a Results Chain pinpointing to impact, outcomes and outputs that EU development interventions are expected to achieve in the sector, reflecting EU policy priorities and commitments. Additionally, a list of Sector Indicators is provided as examples of measurable indicators associated to each result statement. The stated indicators may be used in Log frame Matrices at project/ programme level.

Not just another database

The interactive map is conceived as a gateway providing information on Inclusive Green Economy-related activities (including their objectives, status, results, partners, funders and budgets) implemented with EU support. Each individual project or programme is linked to its related Sustainable Development Goal(s) SDG-and 10YFP programme, showing the concrete contribution of the EU to the sustainable consumption and production (SCP)-related objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development..


In line with the Green Economy result chain, a set of indicators at impact, outcome and output levels has been elaborated to facilitate monitoring and evaluation. An on-line tool has been elaborated to allow encoding of data by SWITCH Grant projects. Evaluation of the entred data will provide insights into output and impacts achieved by the SWITCH regional programmes.
