Issues can be defined in terms of (usually several) indicators, through explicit or implicit rules depending on context such as time, space, and a cultural and socio-political framework.

Indicators are: Measurable properties of the environment, defined in a spatial, temporal, and policy context. Indicators are linked to issues through subjective interpretation and complex evaluation.

Indicators illustrate issues. Indicators are derived from environmental data by simple algorithms such as summation, averaging, interpolation, based on subjective agreements of experts or a well defined regulatory framework of environmental standards and agreements. [1]


The word for indicator in Arabic is pointer. Indicators point to a desirable outcome, to 'which way is up' in the policy arena.[2]

    Los conceptos de Mannis presentados en este artículo no son aplicables directamente a las problemáticas finas y sui generis que se presentan en los proyectos de obras de infraestructura, de explotación y manejo de recursos, etc. que son analizados para EsIA o EsAE o diseñados como "sostenibles" o "ambientalmente amistosos" o calificados con eufemismos semejantes, e.g., aquellos del Mecanismo de desarrollo limpio (MDL), pero los conceptos están muy bien explicados y son útiles y adaptables.
