Rankings of countries and/or regions can then be developed from such an analysis. 27 Accounting for Sustainable Development Performance 28 of these indicators use similar methods to ‘correct’ measures of GDP so that it may be seen to be more akin to a measure of welfare and may, therefore, be a measure of relative SD performance. These are not the only approaches. The World Bank uses a measure which it terms ‘genuine savings’ which takes traditional economic measures of savings reduced by measures of resource depletion and environmental degradation with increases in human capital added to it.

Third, and perhaps more crucially, if accounting for SD performance is linked to creating the possibility of holding organisations to account for their activities then a project evaluation focus will not provide the mechanism (on its own) for the exercise of this accountability. While the data from project evaluations could plausibly provide data for accountability (if all projects were combined together and if other actions outside of project activities were incorporated into an SD account) it is unlikely to be sufficient for this purpose.

The current ‘rules of the game’, in both macro and micro level assessments of performance, rest on monetary estimations of whether or not we are doing ‘better’ or ‘worse’. GDP, for example, is most usually seen as an indicator of the relative success of an economy (with higher levels of GDP being considered to be better). This is evident, for example, in the UK Government’s approach to SD until 2005 in that one of the goals of SD was deemed to be ‘high and stable levels of economic growth’ (Department for Environment, Transport and the Regions, 1999).
