This is a tier 3 indicator – UNDP is the custodian and UN Women is the partner institution. The indicator is based on administrative data. Indicator 16.7.1 has three sub-components – one each for a given set of public institutions, namely the public service, the legislatures and the judiciary. Target 16.7 calls for “responsive, inclusive and representative decision making at all levels.” as such, reporting on this indicator needs to be done separately for various decision-making levels.

This is a tier 3 indicator – UNDP is the custodian. Indicator 16.7.2 is analogous to measuring levels of ‘political efficacy’ (i.e. people’s feeling that their political views can impact on political processes), a well-established concept in political science used by the OECD as a ‘headline indicator’ of civic engagement and governance (ref. OECD’s How’s Life – Measuring Well-Being).
