The Beyond Zero Harm Framework uses a set of 31 Core Indicators that cover an inclusive range of categories around community well-being, including: governance; civic engagement; health; education; safety & security; infrastructure; living standards and economy. While environment is also critical to community well-being, no indicators are included in this Core list; instead indicators tailored to the region should be selected for the monitoring process. The Core Indicators provide a consistency to the framework, while ensuring that what’s being measured is relevant to global development standards (and also more likely to be measured at a national level). The process for choosing core indicators involved extensive research, lengthy debates and a screening process which included assessments of each indicator on the basis of: relevance to the project goals; level of complexity; volatility to change; social sensitivity; cost to measure and the extent to which it was outcome-based. The indicators align with the five core capitals, or asset categories, which form part of the Sustainable Livelihoods Framework.
