Global Partnership monitoring provides evidence on progress in implementing effective development co-operation commitments at the country, regional and global level, supporting accountability among all development partners.

Monitoring framework

The Global Partnership’s monitoring framework tracks progress achieved in implementing the four agreed effective development co-operation principles: ownership, focus on results, inclusive partnerships and transparency and accountability. The framework is country-led, based on developing countries own data and information systems, involves the full range of development stakeholders and contributes to strengthening mutual accountability for implementing commitments and promoting country level dialogue between development partners.

The 10-indicator monitoring framework focuses on strengthening developing countries institutions, increasing the transparency and predictability of development co-operation, enhancing gender equality, as well as supporting greater involvement of civil society, parliaments and the private sector in development efforts.

While other international accountability frameworks monitor what results and outcomes stem from development co-operation, the Global Partnership monitoring framework seeks to capture behaviour change by focusing on how stakeholders engage in development co-operation.

The Global Partnership monitoring framework will inform the measurement of SDG indicators assessing the quality of partnerships and policies needed to effectively deliver the 2030 Agenda. Specifically, it assists countries in reporting on the following SDG targets:


  • 17.16: Enhance the global partnership for sustainable development, complemented by multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the achievement of the sustainable development goals in all countries, in particular developing countries.
  • 17.15: Respect each country’s policy space and leadership to establish and implement policies for poverty eradication and sustainable development.
  • 5c: Adopt and strengthen sound policies and enforceable legislation for the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls at all levels.
