Operations Research and Management Science tools for SDGs' performance evaluation:
Carl Langaker, Operations Research master program, London School of Economics

This book offers a balanced and holistic paradigm for evaluating progress of the SDGs, assisting the convergence of national and international efforts toward economic development, social progress, and environmental protection.

Key Features:

• Includes novel tools, procedures, diagnostics, and metrics for evaluating the entire spectrum of SDGs in a wide variety of settings
• Ranks nations according to their social and economic performance, based on each nation's unique resource and output indicator
• Examines international efforts toward shaping a new Social Contract between global partners
• Delivers a new Calculus of Consent: Logical foundation for forging Geneva Consensus for Sustainable Development

This book examines the promise that is offered in that respect by the operations research technique called Data Envelopment Analysis, but the large scale practical application by the Geneva Consensus Foundation is still awaiting.
