Overview

As outlined in the TAP Network's 2020 Strategic Plan, which was drafted through extensive consultations with TAP Members in 2016, the TAP Network has committed to undertake the drafting of a resource guide for national-level civil society to work towards accountability for the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda. This SDG Accountability Handbook will help national-level CSOs better understand approaches to holding governments accountable to the SDGs, using both existing mechanisms of accountability and newer ones, and guide them through practical steps they can take to enhance monitoring and accountability in their country. It will also build upon existing work undertaken by other civil society groups, including the TAP Network Goal 16 Advocacy Toolkit, Justice: Advocacy and the SDGs, and other related tools and resources.

In addition to showcasing practical guidance on SDG accountability, the SDG Accountability Handbook will also feature relevant case studies from civil society on various approaches to accountability. Following on the broad consultations that the TAP Network has undertaken for the drafting of this Handbook, we are looking for colleagues from civil society to send us case studies to include throughout this Handbook. It is our hope that these case studies will help maximize the learning opportunities around this Handbook, and that they will help guide colleagues to frame their own approaches to SDG accountability in their own contexts.
