Self-assessing Sustainable Local Development: A Tool for Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Guidance and systemization of experiences

Self-assessing Sustainable Local Development tool (SAT4SLD) helps local actors to assess their current status and create consensus on pathways towards a more sustainable future by simultaneously addressing governance, socio-economic and environment issues. As a dynamic tool, the analysis is meant to be repeated over time to help the municipality to assess progress and adjust their activities and investments accordingly. SAT4SLD assumes that sustainable local development is based on local initiative so it is important to have a locally-owned process of monitoring progress or decline across sectors and actors. Not only can local actors best understand their priorities, needs and assets, but they have the most at stake in strengthening well-being within their community. They simply need some guidance in how to measure the multi-dimensional basis of well-being for current and future generations.
