Compendium of Environmental Sustainability Indicators Collections

Project Description
There have been a number of initiatives in recent years to generate indicators
of national-level sustainability, resilience and vulnerability, yet obtaining
the data behind these efforts is often difficult. Even where data are publicly
available for download, combining them with other indicators or ingesting them
into other databases can be problematic. Through this compendium SEDAC has
sought to make the acquisition, comparison and analysis of sustainability
indicators easier by compiling them in a single database, incorporating
multiple country codes, and condensing the indicator descriptions into short
methodological summaries in an accompanying metadata database.
