What has been achieved so far?

From the announcement in October 2015, we have progressed on several fronts. The official launch was kicked off with an event in Amsterdam in February 2016. The remainder of 2016 was about, setting up an independent multi-stakeholder governance structure, developing and approving the strategy, engaging with stakeholders and starting the work together with the signatories.

The first version of the data collection tool was launched by the end of 2016 and given for pilot testing in 43 facilities. The tool was reviewed by all signatories inearly 2017. The feedback was used for improving the next iteration of the tool. Simultaneously, a verification methodology has been developed. The second prototype of the assessment framework, which includes verification, is being piloted in Q4 2017.

Moreover, the project has organized a public stakeholder consultation on this version. Feedback received will be integrated in the next iteration – early 2018. Find out more about the Public Consultation here.

The final version of the tool will be publicly available and will aim to replace the current diversity of assessment tools in 2018. In addition, an ongoing stakeholder engagement and communication process will take place throughout the three-year project timeframe.

Meanwhile we are developing an operational plan to facilitate the adoption of the SLCP assessment framework (tool and verification methodology).

In early 2019, the future vision and strategic plan for continuing support and oversight of the SLCP converged assessment framework will be presented publicly.
