The Global Partnership is updating its Monitoring Framework to reflect the challenges of the 2030 Agenda and better track the effectiveness of all types of development co-operation.

The Nairobi Outcome Document, agreed at the Global Partnership’s Second High-Level Meeting, underscores the importance of the Partnership’s provision of data, evidence and analysis to track progress on effective development co-operation commitments. To contribute to achievement of the 2030 Agenda, the Global Partnership must also address countries’ need to better monitor the effectiveness of their own development efforts. Against this backdrop, the Global Partnership’s Steering Committee outlined an inclusive strategy to adapt and strengthen the current monitoring framework.

The Global Partnership is also proactively adapting to the new development landscape and the pressing challenges of the 2030 Agenda. Work is commencing with an Initial focus on how to best monitor progress toward effective development cooperation in fragile and conflict-affected situations. With half of the world’s poor projected to be living in fragile situations by 2030, building resilience, investing in prevention and combatting fragility are critical to achieving the SDGs and meeting the universal commitment to leave no one behind. While the initial focus is on fragility and conflict affected situations, the monitoring framework will also address other key areas or contexts, including adapting monitoring to private sector engagement in development co-operation and increasing relevance for upper middle-income countries.
