WHAT is the Global Partnership monitoring? WHY participate in it?

line

The Global Partnership monitoring is a partner country-led exercise to promote collective accountability on the effectiveness of development co-operation. Guided by the four internationally-agreed principles for effective development co-operation, the monitoring tracks the country-level progress of partner countries, development partners and other actors in implementing their agreed commitments for more effective development co-operation.

The monitoring exercise drives behaviour change by focusing on how stakeholders partner at the country level for better development results.

The new monitoring exercise will be formally launched at the 2022 Effective Development Co-operation Summit in December, where registered countries will be recognised.

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE NEW GPEDC MONITORING EXERCISE

Since 2011, 99 partner countries have led the monitoring exercise in collaboration with hundreds of development partners and other actors. Following the three previous monitoring rounds, a stakeholder-led, comprehensive reform of the monitoring exercise was undertaken to ensure the exercise continues to meet the original aims and evolving needs of stakeholders. The renewed monitoring features a new framework (what we measure) and an improved process (how we measure).  

The new monitoring retains existing measurements to continue tracking effectiveness trends over time, while better promoting accountability among partners, and integrating priority issues expressed by stakeholders. The new process offers increased flexibility, allowing countries to better embed the exercise in country-level processes, along with a dedicated focus on reflection and dialogue on results for implementation of actions.

The new monitoring exercise will be formally launched at the 2022 Effective Development Co-operation Summit in December, where registered countries will be recognised.

WHO participates in the monitoring exercise?

line

PARTNER COUNTRIES

The Global Partnership monitoring is led by partner country governments, in consultation with their development partners and other domestic actors. The monitoring exercise has been used by country governments to establish or strengthen their national co-operation policies and multi-stakeholder co-ordination mechanisms, including as part of their commitment to track and implement the SDGs.

A national co-ordinator, appointed by the partner country government, who is usually an official sitting at the ministry overseeing the management of development co-operation, organises the participation of development partners and other actors, making use of existing dialogue or co-ordination mechanisms for engagement, when possible.

Following their participation in the monitoring exercise, countries receive country results briefs that provide a detailed account of their results. This results brief can be used to better understand and disseminate findings, as well as jointly plan and take action with stakeholders.

INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PARTNERS

Participation in the monitoring exercise is voluntary and led by partner country governments. Given the exercise’s core focus on accountability, it attracts high participation from all development actors due to its unique potential to gather evidence leading to dialogue, to help unlock persistent challenges limiting the impact of development co-operation.

Development partners play a vital role in the monitoring through their support towards coordination and mobilisation of peers, capacity building, and logistical and/or financial support provided to partner countries implementing the monitoring process and its follow-up at country level. 

Following their participation in a monitoring round, development partners will receive development partner profiles that provide a detailed account of their performance vis-à-vis the partner countries they report towards.

CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANISATIONS / PRIVATE SECTOR ACTORS/ LOCAL GOVERNMENTS / OTHER DOMESTIC ACTORS IN A PARTNER COUNTRY

The monitoring exercise is led by partner country governments through an appointed national co-ordinator, and involves all types of development actors. Active participation of domestic development actors, like civil society organisations, private sector actors among others, in the monitoring exercise at country-level is crucial to ensure inclusiveness in the collective effort to increase the effectiveness of the country’s development co-operation. The exercise’s focus on collective accountability and unique potential to gather evidence to facilitate dialogue with governments and development partners, attracts high participation of diverse development actors.

National coordinators will invite domestic actors from different stakeholder groups to participate in the exercise and, if relevant, to report on specific questions (for example, a civil society focal point is invited to assess the environment for civil society to operate in the country).

Development actors’ engagement in dialogue and action around the overall results of the monitoring exercise is critical to improve the effectiveness of partnerships to jointly reach those in need.

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE NEW MONITORING ROUND & THE FOUR YEAR CYCLE

The global monitoring exercise will follow a four year cycle, with the upcoming [4th] monitoring round spanning over 2023-2026, following the 2022 Effective Development Co-operation Summit (HLM3), and culminating in the fourth High-Level Meeting in 2026. Countries have the flexibility to participate when most suited to their national processes and priorities, with the process taking approximately a year for individual countries.

At the country-level, participation in the monitoring exercise entails the following phases with approximate durations. A customised calendar will be developed with every country signing up to ensure each phase can be adequately implemented.
