The UNECE Steering Committee endorsed the indicators at its second meeting (4-5 December 2006) and entrusted the Expert Group with the following two tasks:
1. To revise the set of indicators as appropriate, following the pilot reporting exercise and feedback from countries on the workability and feasibility of the indicators and the requested information for reporting
2. Further to the relevant outcomes of the Moscow workshop, to explore the possibility of developing criteria to assess success in the implementation of the UNECE Strategy for ESD in the countries of the UNECE region, based on the indicators and on the examples submitted by countries to the UNECE secretariat.
Following this decision, the Expert Group held its fifth meeting in Vienna, Austria on 20-22 June 2007 to address Task 2. For more information, see documents for this meeting:
