The National Cities Performance Framework (NCPF) was launched in 2017 with the commitment to conduct reviews every 3 years. The first 3 Year Review will examine what improvements can be implemented in the 2021 update and future years. This consultation paper is the start of the public consultation process, conducted over January-February 2021. It details the 3-year review process, the issues being considered, and the proposed approach for each issue. Some of the topics covered include potential new indicators, a review of the geographies, and improving the structure of the framework.
