(MENAFN - Morocco World News) President of the National Observatory for Human Development (ONDH), Rachid Benmokhtar, presented, on Wednesday at the headquarters of the UNICEF in New York, the tools Morocco has developed to ensure better assessment of government action in terms of human development.
Speaking at a political forum on the assessment of sustainable development, Benmokhtar said the ONDH gathers information from the High Commission for Planning (HCP), which overlaps with the results of studies on a range of issues concerning employment, households and demographics, among others.
In order to ensure a suitable and effective evaluation of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Observatory has developed a system that brings together all of the HCP statistics and studies, he added.
The ONDH also formed a sample group of 8,000 households that are surveyed each year on a different set of issues, said Benmokhtar, adding that the group will be extended soon to include 16,000 households.
"This is the best evaluation tool that we have developed", the Moroccan official stressed.
This tool, which includes 500 questions, gives information on many subjects related to social development, sustainable development, and environmental impact, he noted.
This meeting is part of a series of forums on sustainable development that will run until July20 at the UN headquarters in New York.
