What is a Regional Food Indicator Framework?
An indicator is a statistical measure that tells us about the present state of something or about changes over time and are typically used in the evaluation and assessment of policies or programs by measuring activities and outcomes. They are designed to measure progress towards program goals and objectives that align with the mission/value/vision of an organization or program.
Strategic indicators can help us to...
- Measure the effectiveness and efficiency of local food system initiatives;
- Track progress towards strategic goals and targets and identify success or needs;
- Support public education and engagement; and
- Promote advocacy and gain traction on local food initiatives and policy.
