3: Leveraging Monitoring for Action
Leveraging Monitoring for Action
The Global Partnership Monitoring exercise is undergoing a reform process that will result in a new monitoring proposal, for endorsement at the third GPEDC High Level Meeting.
The Global partnership monitoring exercise
The Global Partnership monitoring exercise provides unique data and evidence to guide countries and their development partners in assessing progress and obstacles in improving the effectiveness of their co-operation, a critical aspect of accelerating progress towards 2030. While stakeholders value the monitoring as a core function of the Global Partnership, there is also recognition of the need to continue re-thinking the exercise to ensure it meets its original aims and the evolving needs of stakeholders, and to leverage results of monitoring for effectiveness actions by all partners. In 2020-2022, the Global Partnership will focus its monitoring work on the following:
- Facilitating the use of monitoring results, including:
1. Country-led "deep dives" to understand how monitoring results are informing policy and behavioural changes of partners and to understand the underlying causes of development effectiveness challenges and
2. Stakeholder-driven dialogues and actions to identify and address key effectiveness bottlenecks.
- Reforming the monitoring exercise: what is measured (indicator framework) and how it is measured (the process of monitoring exercise). This work will capture effective partnering to deliver on the SDGs across different co-operation approached and modalities, coupled with new evidence from piloting, as well as snapshot of progress on effectiveness issues based on action in response to monitoring results.
This comprehensive reform of the monitoring exercise will lead to a new monitoring proposal, to be put forward for endorsement at the next High-Level Meeting (HLM3). As such, ahead of HLM3 there will not be a global monitoring round the way it was done in 2014, 2016 and 2018. In this "period of transition", the Global Partnership will draw on results and evidence generated from the country-level and stakeholder-led dialogue and action, as well as data generated from the piloting of new measurement approaches.
