Short description: Indicator suggestions including for land use Indicators are needed to monitor progress and to allow for benchmarking and comparison between Member States. In the Roadmap, the Commission announced that it would launch a joint effort with stakeholders to define indicators and targets for guiding actions and monitoring progress on the path to the 2050 resource efficiency vision. The Roadmap also sets out a list of possible indicators in its Annex 62. These indicators follow a three-tiered approach to measuring progress towards a resource efficient, low-carbon economy: - The Commission proposed 'resource productivity' (GDP/DMC3) as a provisional lead indicator as the best available proxy for resource efficiency. - This lead indicator is complemented by a second tier dashboard of complementary macro indicators on land, water and carbon. - The third tier consists of theme specific indicators to measure progress towards specific key thematic objectives and the actions and milestones set out in the Roadmap.
