Technical Expert Panels

As part of our rigorous indicator selection process, a Technical Expert Panel (TEP) was convened for each chapter to select the indicators to be included in the Report. For each chapter, potential indicators were identified through an extensive review of existing indicators from peer-reviewed and “grey” (unpublished) literature. The chapter-specific TEPs then used a modified Delphi process (consisting of an online survey and an in-person meeting) to rate and select the final set of indicators to be used in the Report.

For more information on the indicator selection process and on the role of TEPs, please see the Introduction and Framework chapters.
