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 inclusive partnerships for development in order to reinforce the Busan commitment to build partnerships that can create synergies and capitalise on diverse and complementary contributions for more effective development co-operation.

Inclusiveness is essential for effective development partnerships. A whole-of-society approach is needed to mobilise support and resources from all development partners; strengthen co-ordination and collaboration; create synergies and reduce duplication of efforts; and capitalise on the diverse and complementary contributions of stakeholders. Refinements will be made to indicators measuring inclusive partnerships for development in order to reinforce the Busan commitment to build inclusive partnerships for more effective development co-operation.

Proposed Refinements

CSO enabling environment (Indicator 2)

The multi-stakeholder dialogue process associated with data collection will be strengthened and the questionnaire design for sourcing results will be improved and simplified.

Quality of public-private dialogue (Indicator 3)

The short questionnaire will be expanded to deepen the assessment of the quality of public-private partnerships, to capture critical issues for private sector engagement in development and the optional module will be removed.

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
    (February – March 2018)

    Through a series of online, public consultations, all development co-operation stakeholders will be invited to provide feedback on the refinement process. Check back soon for more details on the consultations.

  • 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.
