Results and Indicators for Development in Circular Economy – European Commission

The Circular Economy Outcomes and Indicators for Development provides guidance for the design of actions developed by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Partnerships. It aims to improve the quality of interventions by providing clear and measurable outcome statements aligned with EU policy priorities and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a specific focus on the circular economy. The document covers EU policy priorities, including the importance of incorporating circular economy principles, results chains, and sectoral indicators for various sectors to guide government and businesses in project preparation.

Likewise, it highlights the importance of monitoring and reporting progress during implementation and provides examples of indicators that can be used in project-level matrices. The guidance is updated periodically to reflect evolving priorities in development work.
