Monitoring Framework


The Milan Urban Food Policy Pact is building a monitoring framework process to assess the progress made by cities in achieving more sustainable food systems, and therefore in the implementation of the Pact.

Although the non-binding nature of the agreement, many MUFPP cities have in fact requested to identify MUFPP measurable indicators and targets to monitor their progress.  Following this request, the Municipality of Milan together with the technical support of FAO have joint forces to work on a monitoring framework, which is doable, sustainable (in terms of both human and financial resources), and in line with cities’ capabilities and administrative obligations.

The process  to build a monitoring framework (a set of shared indicators and quantifiable targets) has the following timeframe.

  • From March 2016 to October 2016: Identification of a shared set of indicators (ad hoc meeting is planned for the 13th October in Rome).
  • From November 2016 to October 2017Call for pilot cities interested in piloting the monitoring framework.
