The Global Partnership Index
assessing partnership efforts of governments and societies
indicators - one index
countries covered so far

This Index examines the policies and social patterns of individual countries in relation to partnership and dominance models. Observing and tracking such developments globally is key for larger sustainability transformation efforts: The orientation of a society based on partnership principles and the development of sustainable action in a society are mutually dependent. The Index is based on CLIs Transformation Enablers that orient large scale transformation efforts.

How the index works

The data collected is a combination of

  • Aspects and measures on partnerships that can be directly influenced by the countries’ decision-makers;
  • Other indices that can only be influenced indirectly, which means the Partnership Index is also partially a meta-index, and
  • Dominance factors that counteract partnership aspects in that country
