Identifying information requirements and deriving indicators
Information requirements related to the footprint of mineral industries, both globally and locally will be derived from the analysis of policies at all three levels. For the local stakeholders, this will be supported by an onsite mapping of information demand with interviews and discussion workshops.
Indicators will be selected and tested using resonance analysis methodology, which has been dedicated specifically to match policies with indicators. Specifically, resonance analysis collects empirical evidence on whether and how specific Earth Observation services can be related to phases of the policy cycle (e.g. agenda setting, implementation, evaluation)
