The new monitoring exercise has started rolling out in 2023. At the halfway mark to the 2030 Agenda, it is vital to capitalize on the momentum created at the Summit to progressively strengthen political momentum, mobilization and support around the monitoring exercise. With data continuing to feed into official reporting on SDGs 5 and 17 indicators, the monitoring results show how principle-based development co-operation partnerships can contribute to accelerated development progress and SDG implementation at country level.   

The 2023 GPEDC LAP is timely, as it will provide participating countries of the 2023-2026 monitoring round with the necessary knowledge to lead and co-ordinate the exercise in their countries.  In addition, this training will provide the opportunity to generate training materials which can serve stakeholders during the entire 2023-2026 monitoring round, including video tutorials. 


Target group:

  • National Coordinators (government officials appointed from a ministry with a mandate/role in managing development co-operation) from Partner Country Governments from Africa and Latin America, who have committed to participate in the 4th Monitoring round and to begin the exercise in 2023 or 2024. A similar training will be held in Indonesia at a later date, for Asia and Asia-Pacific countries who have committed to participate in the 4th Monitoring round and to begin the exercise in 2023 and 2024.
  • In addition, given the multi-stakeholder nature of the GPEDC and its monitoring exercise, the LAP will include a limited number of non-executive stakeholders representing their constituency at the global level, who will then be expected in turn to convey relevant elements of the program to their counterparts in the countries undertaking the monitoring exercise.  


Programme Objective

At the end of the LAP, participants will have: 

  • A thorough understanding of the process and framework of the Global Partnership monitoring, and reflect on ways in which to use the exercise for more effective cooperation; explore implications of monitoring and monitoring findings for the participants' country contexts;  
  • Provide a platform for peer-to-peer learning and skills training on the implementation of the GPEDC monitoring exercise, including from previous global and country-level experiences;
  • Understand how the components of the monitoring can be threaded into national processes and mechanisms;
  • Improve the participants’ understanding of what constitutes effective development cooperation and encourage them to apply lessons learned in their own working contexts; and 
  • Foster a community of practice on effective development cooperation among participants and module leads.
