Experiences in Indicator Implementation in two very different contexts: 

1) Bogota Como Vamos: Measuring well-being in urban contexts - Drawbacks and advantages (Restrepo) 

2) Tasajera Tides: Small-scale indicator systems in vulnerable communities (Teodoro/ Wright ) 
This presentation outlines a low-cost, small-scale and highly replicable model for establishing community information systems in small, vulnerable communities by examining Tasajera Tides, an indicator system in coastal El Salvador.  The presentation will provide a critical analysis of Tasajera Tides methodologies and outline universal and distinctive featuresof the project, including community engagement approaches, participatory instruments, project governance, indicator selection, data collection,and cost-efficiency. We aim to share how, through theTasajera Tides model, small communities may gain the opportunity to takeownership of their own development through increased access to information capital.
