California Water Plan Update 2013: Pilot Statewide Assessment

This project uses indicators to measure progress toward meeting stakeholder and Water Plan goals and objectives. These indicators capture many aspects of the social, economic, and natural systems that are influenced by water use and management. The Sustainability Indicators Framework (SIF) was developed as a process for using indicators to measure progress toward water sustainability. There are >120 proposed indicators that could be used to measure progress. Over 20 of these were used at the state and regional (Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority) scales as a pilot test of implementation of the SIF.
