Definition: COSA indicators are designed to quantify and clarify information in a manner that promotes the understanding of key environmental, social, and economic issues.
What an indicator captures is important but even more valuable is the combined COSA experience to gather, analyze, and communicate results in a balanced and effective manner. COSA indicators are designed to be similar across all countries to allow for comparison but are also adapted to allow for local contexts.
