For National Co-ordinators from Participating Governments


The objective of this monitoring guide is to help participating governments lead their country’s participation in the 2018 monitoring round of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (hereafter “the Global Partnership”).

This document provides guidance on the process and methodology of the monitoring exercise, and outlines how countries and their partners can use the results. The monitoring exercise, led by participating governments, is assisted by the OECD-UNDP Joint Support Team of the Global Partnership.

The first deadline for countries to submit data is 31 October 2018. This will allow countries to use the findings to inform the Sustainable Development Goals and Financing for Development follow-up and review processes, as well as the Global Partnership Senior-Level Meeting, scheduled to take place in July 2019 in concurrence with the United Nations High Level Political Forum.

All countries are invited to participate in monitoring efforts. A list of countries that have expressed their interest in participating in the monitoring exercise is available at the Our Evidence page.

Countries interested in participating and not yet included in the country list are invited to contact the OECD-UNDP Joint Support Team at monitoring@effectivecooperation.org.
