Shared Measurement System
Explore the winning conditions and impact measures that provide a roadmap to achieving our results and, ultimately, our ambitious goal.

Overview

Welcome to the Shared Measurement System dashboard.

Here you will be able to take a deeper dive into the winning conditions and impact measures that we use to assess and enhance our collective performance.

Winning conditions are a set of circumstances that, when brought together, are likely to contribute to achieving the results. Impact measures are the metrics we use to measure progress on achieving our winning conditions. Each Winning Condition is associated with one or more impact measure.

Together, the winning conditions and impact measures provide a roadmap for the entire freshwater community to pursue together.

 



Winning Conditions

 

The winning conditions are our theories on how we can work towards the results. We believe that the following winning conditions will make a large difference if we can collectively achieve them:

Impact Measures

 

Impact measures are metrics that help us to measure and assess our progress on achieving these winning conditions.

Impact measures are a key part of the shared measurement system because reporting on them regularly gives us an idea of how we are doing as a Network and they also help to facilitate collaboration and set priorities for collective action.
