Programme Monitoring System (PMS)

An experience in measuring performance towards sustainability

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Malaysian-Danish Environmental Cooperation Programme 2003 - 2006 (ECP) is an environmental assistance from Denmark to Malaysia to inculcate environmental considerations in development planning processes, which focus on five thematic areas, i.e. Environmental Planning and Strategy (EPS), Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RE&EE), Solid Waste Management (SWM), Environmentally Hazardous Substances (EHS) and Biodiversity (BioD). A Programme Monitoring System (PMS) was then developed to monitor and evaluate the impact of the ECP on certain aspects of development planning processes and state of perception and the environment in Malaysia. After deliberation and discussion in numerous multi-stakeholder consultation workshops, a series of indicators associated with appropriate implementing agencies were developed as monitoring tools in the PMS. This paper discussed the mechanism of the establishment of PMS, as well as the lessons learned and the way forward.
