2018 Monitoring Results



The Global Partnership’s monitoring exercise is led by partner country governments, and brings together development partners, civil society, the private sector, parliaments, local governments and others, to strengthen the effectiveness of their partnerships.

The Third Monitoring Round of the Global Partnership was launched in June 2018. 86 partner countries and territories, in collaboration with more than 100 development partners, provided data as part of the monitoring exercise. The 2019 Global Progress report presents results from the third Monitoring Round. The Report examines how partner countries are putting in place the building blocks for an effective, whole-of-society development effort (Part I) and how effectively development partners support such country-led efforts (Part II).

You can download results for all Global Partnership Monitoring indicators and selected sub-indicators, with data dating back to 2010, here.

There are three datasets in the file:

  • Recipient: containing data on the level of partner countries
  • Providers: containing data on the level of development partners
  • Provider-Recipient: containing disaggregated data of a specific development partner in a given partner country

The file also contains codebooks for the three datasets. Some of the entries in the codebooks reference the “Country Excel” template (that was used as data collection tool), the Monitoring Guide and the Technical Companion that describe how indicators are calculated and aggregated. These documents are available here: Monitoring Guide | Technical Companion



The post monitoring survey of the 2018 Monitoring Round collected feedback on national coordinators’ experiences throughout the monitoring exercise. Key findings from the survey are presented in this report.
