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. Its Steering Committee has outlined an inclusive strategy to refine the current Monitoring Framework, following a three-track approach.

Track 3 focuses on making the country-level monitoring process more effective, inclusive and action-oriented. Capitalising on feedback from participating countries, experts and practitioners, Track 3aims to strengthen the monitoring process and facilitate increased participation in monitoring by all development co-operation stakeholders by:

Increasing demand for the monitoring process, explicitly laying out the benefits of participating for each stakeholder, and connecting Global Partnership monitoring to SDG follow-up and review processes at the country level.

Strengthening the country-led approach by providing additional guiding materials to better ground the monitoring process in national systems and processes and streamline data collection wherever possible.

Providing detailed, yet user-friendly technical guidance, in-person training opportunities and video tutorials.

Enhancing development partners’ engagement at Headquarters and country levels, with better communications and guidance, targeted trainings and a strengthened role for development partners.

Bringing complementary analysis into the Monitoring Report to deepen the assessment of the monitoring results.

Improving support for use of findings, with guidance and materials on how to analyse, communicate and use the monitoring findings at country and agency levels.

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

    Through a series of online, public consultations, all development co-operation stakeholders will be invited to provide feedback on the revised indicators and process. Click here to access our most recent online consultations forum..

  • 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.
