Assessing CSO engagement: The Global Partnership and the Sustainable Development Goals Monitoring Frameworks – A Task Team Discussion Paper (September 2015)
The Task Team produced a discussion paper Assessing CSO engagement: The Global Partnership and the Sustainable Development Goals Monitoring Frameworks. The discussion paper illustrates the relevance of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation’s (GPEDC) Monitoring Framework – and Indicator Two on the enabling environment for civil society specifically – to the SDG Monitoring Framework and explores how Indicator Two could be used to inform SDG monitoring. The paper offers the following recommendations:
- Use of Indicator Two as a multi-purpose indicator in the SDG Global Monitoring Framework
- Use of Indicator Two as a source for CSO enabling environment thematic assessment
- Use of Indicator Two as a national indicator within the framework of ongoing GPEDC monitoring
- GPEDC engagement in the IAEG-SDGs’ construction of the SDG Monitoring Framework
The discussion paper is offered to the GPEDC as it continues to work with its Monitoring Advisory Group (MAG) on developing a GPEDC position in relation to the SDG agenda.
