Track 1 aims to strengthen the quality and usefulness of the current ten-indicator framework by addressing information gaps and reinforcing the methodologies, guidance and process for data collection at the country-level.

In order to increase the quality and usefulness of information, the Global Partnership is refining its current Monitoring Framework. Refinements will be made to indicators measuring results focus in order to reinforce the Busan commitment to use country-led results frameworks to design new interventions, set objectives for expected results and monitor and track progress.

By aligning with countries’ results frameworks, development partners ensure that development co-operation addresses the country’s priorities and contributes to its capacity to plan, monitor, evaluate and communicate its progress toward sustainable development. Refinements will be made to indicators measuring results focus in order to reinforce the Busan commitment to use country-led results frameworks to design new interventions, set objectives for expected results and monitor and track progress.

Proposed Refinements

Focus on results (Indicators 1a and 1b)

Indicator 1a will be complemented with an assessment of alignment and use of country-led results frameworks to define development partners’ country-level strategies. Indicator 1b will be improved to better assess the quality of country planning tools and the level of uptake and domestication of the SDGs.

How to Get Involved

All Global Partnership stakeholders are encouraged to actively participate in the refinement process through the following activities, as appropriate:

  • Pilot Testing
    (February – March 2018)

    The refined framework will be piloted in February 2018 to gather feedback on whether the framework responds to country needs, is relevant and is easy to implement. Contact the UNDP-OECD Joint Support Team to learn about ways to provide feedback on the revised framework.

  • Online Consultations
    (Open through April 9)

    Through a series of online, public consultations, all development co-operation stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the revised indicators and process. Click here to access the online consultations platform.

  • Participation in the 2018 Monitoring Round

    The third monitoring round will be launched in May 2018, with a user-friendly support package, including a Monitoring Guide and how-to workshops /webinars. Contact the UNDP-OECD Joint Support Team for more details on how to participate.
