How should older people’s well-being be measured?

From:03-10-2013

To: 17-10-2013

Online Discussion from 3 until 17 October 2013!

How Should Older People’s Well-being be Measured?

Allianz – Open Knowledge, HelpAge, Centre for Social Protection, European Network on Measuring Progress, Global Alliance of International Longevity Centres, Institute of Social and Medical Studies, International Council on Social Welfare, OECD – Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, PRO Global, Wikiprogress and World Bankinvite you to participate in this online discussion from 3 – 17 October 2013

Background

The Global AgeWatch Index was launched by the HelpAge Network on 1 October – the UN International Day of Older Persons.It is the first global index to rank countries according to the social and economic well-being of older people.
The index provides a measure of 13 different indicators across four key domains of income security, health status, education and employment, as well as aspects of the enabling environment already identified by older people as being of utmost importance to them.

  • The Index is groundbreaking in that it broadens the way we understand the needs and opportunities of older people, going far beyond the adequacy of pensions and other income support which, though critical, often narrows policy thinking and debate regarding the needs of this age group.
  • It involves a pioneering application of human development methodology to the construction of an index of the well-being of older people.
  • It challenges countries in every part of the world. The report’s ranking of countries in terms of the needs and opportunities of older people shows that a country’s GNP neither guarantees good living for older people nor is an obstacle to improving their situation. Older people in poorer countries often have better lives on average in several key respects than those in somewhat richer ones. The index of older people, thus, serves as a challenge to governments and community groups to raise their sights as to what is possible. As the number and proportion of older people rises in many countries, the importance of these lessons cannot be overstated.

It has been developed and constructed from international data sets drawn from the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the World Bank, World Health Organization, International Labour Organisation and the Gallup World Poll.

It has benefited from a global advisory panel of more than 40 independent experts in ageing, health, social protection and human development. The Index will be developed over time to expand from its current number of 91 countries to all UN Member States.

In the spirit of the global call for the “data revolution” to “leave no one behind” in the post-2015 development framework, it is hoped that the Index will become a central reference point for governments, employers, civil society, communities, families and older people themselves in order to ensure a culture that does not discriminate on the basis of age. A culture in which contributions of older people to their economies and societies are recognised and supported is one which “leaves no one behind”.

Leading questions

  • How can evidence gathering tools such as the Global AgeWatch Index be useful in fostering progress towards ensuring economic and social rights of older people around the world?
  • What are the most important domains of wellbeing of older persons? What specific indicators can you suggest for each of the four domains of wellbeing used in constructing the Global AgeWatch Index?
  • The Global AgeWatch framework offers a composite index, domain-specific indices in four domains of wellbeing of older persons, as well as a full set of individual indicators. What approach is the most effective in your view in engaging policymakers?
  • What public policies and programmes had the most impact on the welfare of older persons? Provide specific examples.
  • What is the best way to ensure collecting data on ageing happens in a systematic way and that this data is reflected in the national and international data sets used in the goals, targets and indicators for the post-2015 framework? What difference would this make both to development and to older people?

OECDMexicoLogo.jpgAcademica impulsada.jpgLogo TELMEXHUB.jpgImagina mexico.jpg

Wikiprogress América Latina, La OCDE Centro de México, Académica, ImaginaMexico, TelmexHub y Wikiprogress quieren conocer tu opinión sobre “Políticas Públicas para el Buen Vivir y el Bienestar en América Latina”. Esta discusión en línea será una oportunidad única para discutir, intercambiar puntos de vista y mejores prácticas en esta materia. Se invita a los participantes a compartir los resultados de su investigación o sus propias experiencias. El debate empieza a las 09:00 de 26 Septiembre hasta 7 Octubre 2013 y se centrará en las siguientes preguntas:

  • ¿Existe la necesidad en América Latina de evaluar el desempeño social con indicadores que van más allá del Producto Interno Bruto y su tasa de crecimiento?
  • Si es así, ¿Qué otros indicadores deberíamos tomar en cuenta para evaluar el progreso social y el bienestar de los habitantes?
  • ¿Qué consecuencias tiene esto para las políticas públicas, programas sociales, y estrategias de desarrollo que se llevan a cabo en América Latina?
  • ¿Hay en América Latina ejemplos de políticas públicas que consideran el bienestar y la felicidad de los habitantes?

Sobre el tema de discusión:

“Durante las últimas décadas se ha intensificado el pedido de reevaluar el predominio que los indicadores de producción y disponibilidad de bienes económicos, tales como el producto interno bruto (PIB), han tenido en la apreciación del progreso de las sociedades y del bienestar de sus habitantes. La inquietud no es trivial, ya que tiene como trasfondo una reconsideración tanto epistemológica –la forma de saberlo– como de sustancia –en lo que es– del propósito de la organización social y de la política pública. La demanda por reevaluar el predominio del PIB y de su familia de indicadores surge desde varios frentes: los políticos y funcionarios públicos encuentran que los logros que obtienen de acuerdo a las metas fijadas no son correspondidos en la apreciación que de su gestión hacen los ciudadanos. Por su parte, los ciudadanos no sienten en toda su extensión los beneficios que de acuerdo al discurso político y a los planteamientos teóricos deberían estar recibiendo. Por otro lado, el escepticismo en la comunidad académica con respecto al predominio del PIB como indicador de progreso ha ido creciendo durante los últimos años, sobre todo conforme más economistas se unen a algunas de las críticas hechas al uso del PIB como indicador de progreso social y como aproximación del bienestar de sus habitantes.”1

How should child well-being be measured in view of future development frameworks?

From:19-06-2013

To: 02-07-2013

Wikiprogress Online Discussion: June 2013

SYNTHESIS REPORT of the online consultation! How should child well-being be measured in view of future development frameworks?
Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children, World Health Organization, Wikiprogress, Wikigender and Wikichild invite you to participate in this online discussion
NOW CLOSED – contact: info@wikiprogress.org

Measuring child well-being has traditionally rested on economic measures such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP); however, it is now widely accepted that the well-being of the nation is influenced by a broad range of factors including economic performance, quality of life, the state of the environment, sustainability, equality, as well as individual well-being.

Over the last decade, organisations around the world have been developing new indicators of progress that look beyond GDP and economic growth when measuring child well-being.

The well-being of children is high on the agenda for policy makers and this online consultation, hosted by Wikichild, seeks to engage discussion on the most effective means of measuring child well-being and how these measures should be applied to upcoming development frameworks such as the Post 2015 agenda.

Leading Questions

  • What is the actual state of child well-being today?
  • What are the most important domains of well-being – specifically for children?
  • What policies have had the most impact on children in the past? Provide examples of successful initiatives
  • Should there be a child development goal in the Post 2015 framework?

Reducing poverty is achievable

From:06-03-2013

-

To: 15-03-2013

The Wikiprogress 6-15 March online consultation!

SYNTHESIS REPORT of the online consultation!

Reducing poverty is achievable
Finding those who are hidden by inequalities

The OECD Global Forum on Development (GFD) will be convened on 4-5 April 2013, with discussions by renowned experts and leading policy-makers focusing on the global development agenda beyond 2015. The Wikiprogress community and partners are holding a public consultation* on this topic from 6-15 March. The outcomes will be presented at the Forum.

The topic of the online consultation

One of the key ways to address the inequalities which cause poverty is ensuring development is about people and how they live together. Ahead of the OECD GFD, Wikiprogress would like to highlight the individuals, families, communities and societies that have been hidden by social and economic inequalities. We would also like to bring to light the stories of successful programmes, policies and methodologies which have made a difference in people’s lives. The discussion opens on 6 March and closes on 15 March 2013 at 17h (GMT+1). The Global Forum on Development invites you to share your stories and/or solutions for:

  • People who are, have been or might be hidden from economic growth.
  • People who are, have been or might be hidden from social programmes.
  • People who are, have been or might be hidden from statistics and what this means for the well-being of societies.

To guide you in your interventions, please find some key questions below that the Forum and this consultation would like your views on.

Key Questions

The target of eliminating poverty as captured by the UN Millennium Declaration is achievable. Economic growth in developing and emerging economies has improved lives of many poor people and led to the emergence of a middle class. However, income inequalities have been rising in many countries and many people remain vulnerable. In addition, inequalities are increasingly being understood as stretching beyond income to a number of other characteristics such as gender, age, origin, labour-market status.

  • How can we ensure that all of these inequalities are addressed, since they have an impact both at individual and societal level?
  • What are the most effective ways to tackle the factors that drive these inequalities? How can we measure progress on reducing poverty in the years to come?

An important part of a new development framework is the well-being agenda, which was absent from the MDGs but has been widely discussed since the establishment, in 2008, of the Commission on the measurement of economic performance and social progress (also known as the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi Commission).

  • How can the broader concept of progress inform post-2015 approaches to poverty reduction? How can well-being and progress indicators contribute to the broader process of defining and developing the post-2015 agenda?
  • What are country experiences for reducing poverty and increasing well-being using this approach? What is the role of development agencies to help advance this agenda?
* This discussion is brought to you by the OECD, Paris21, Save the Children, ODI’s Development Progress, the Oxford Poverty & Human Development Initiative (OPHI), UNICEF, Jeune Afrique, The Africa Report, European Report on Development (ERD), Wikigender, Wikichild and the Global Progress Research Network (GPRNet).

About the GFD

These questions will be discussed at the 2013 Global Forum on Development. High-level policy makers, academia, civil society and the private sector will look at these questions and explore challenges, opportunities and lessons learned about current poverty reduction policies and methods for fostering social cohesion and progress. They will exchange perspectives on how they can be addressed at international, national and local levels and the nexus between each. The results will contribute to the improvement of the poverty reduction policies designed and implemented by governments, international organisations and others in the post-2015 world. The Forum will be the first in a series of three forums to be held over the next three years focusing on how this could be done.

“We need to build our knowledge regarding what works or does not work to achieve better lives. We need new evidence and models to understand how people think and behave, and how policies can raise well-being given our new understanding.”
Martine Durand, OECD Chief Statistician
“Inequality is so important. There is a strong feeling among disadvantaged groups that their story is hidden in aggregate figures.”
Helen Clark – The former New Zealand prime minister and administrator of the UN Development Programme
“A focus on well-being means a shift in the way we look at development, one which takes into account disparities rather than averages. It means measuring what matters to people’s lives and finding the gaps in order to better focus on improving current quality of life while ensuring a sustainable future”.
Mario Pezzini, Director, OECD Development Centre

Canadian Index of Wellbeing Online Discussion

From:09-05-2012

-

To: 23-05-2012

The Wikiprogress Team in Collaboration with the Canadian Index of Wellbeing!

As part of Civil Society, how the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) is leading change

The Global Progress Research Network, Wikiprogress and the Canadian Index of Wellbeing invite you to participate in an online discussion which will open on 9 May. The discussion will be open until 23 May and will provide inputs to the 4th OECD World Forum in New Delhi, India in October of 2012.

The title (and focus) of the World Forum will be “Measuring Well-Being for Development and Policy-Making”.

Background

Over the last decade, organisations around the world have been developing new indicators of progress that look beyond GDP and economic growth in measuring wellbeing. To date, the progress discourse has focused on the development of new measures and methodologies to gauge wellbeing at the local, national and international levels. Today, a new conversation is taking place: now that we have newer and smarter measures of progress, how can they be applied to policy? One of the leading organisations in the progress movement, the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW), invites you to join this conversation and have your say in the next global phase of measuring what matters and in finding out how these indicators are going to be used at the policy level.

Ways to get involved

1. Watch the 9:15 minute long video presentation of the Index by Dr. Bryan Smale
2. Read the 3 leading questions listed below3. Write your feedback, comments, answers to the question, thoughts on the video or overall thoughts on applying indicators to policy to be a part of the conversation using the Disqus facility below. If you are including a link in your response, please be sure to use a URL shortener otherwise the link will not appear

 

Watch the Presentation

The Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) goes beyond narrow economic measures like GDP and provides Canada’s only national index that measures wellbeing across a wide spectrum of domains. The work of CIW extends beyond Canada; both methods and models of the index have been used across the world by organisations developing more comprehensive measures of progress. As a leader in the “beyond GDP” movement, the CIW is promoting a dialogue of the future of measurement and the application of these indicators to policy.

Leading Questions

1. How can initiatives like the CIW foster the progress of societies in Canada and also around the world in the current economic climate?2. The CIW uses a combined approach to the development of alternative measures of wellbeing, including a composite index, dashboard, and full set of indicators. What approach is the most effective?3. Now that the first CIW Composite Index is in the public domain, the CIW has some examples of early uptake and use. How can initiatives like the CIW evaluate progress over time?
