The 2023 Coherence Index assesses the performance of 153 countries based on two major pillars: “transitions” and “planetary pressure”.
Transitions represent the major changes that public policies coherent with sustainable development need to address. Four transitions: democratic, feminist, socioeconomic and ecological have been identified. Each of these transitions consists of a set of dimensions that are evaluated by 50 indicators.
Planetary pressure measures the ecological impact and pressure that the countries evaluated exert on the planet and is measured by two indicators: per capita material footprint and per capita CO2 emissions.
That comes to a total of 52 indicators gleaned from available statistical information for the period between 2019 and 2022.
