A collection of indicators meant to be broadly applicable to IFRC PSS programmes of various kinds. Indicators are designed to measure the change produced by PSS programmes. Although each programme will be unique, certain key priority areas are shared among different kinds of PSS programmes. This guide therefore outlines sample indicators that capture the key aspects of change that PSS programmes hope to achieve.
The Indicator Guide is part of the IFRC Psychosocial Monitoring and Evaluation Framework, which was developed in order to identify and ensure best practices throughout IFRC global psychosocial programmes, contributing to quality interventions and strengthening the advocacy for psychosocial support programmes. The framework aims to support National Societies to design relevant M&E systems for psychosocial programmes, to help in programme planning and the development of strategies, and to mainstream global reporting of progress on PS programmes as they contribute to achieving the priorities of IFRC Strategy 2020.
