The TAP Network’s engagement structures are broken down into two main categories: “Members” and “Partners,” with each enjoying very different sets of privileges and benefits. These various options for organizations provide a responsive yet flexible engagement structure that enables TAP to identify key implementation partners to support its work, while at the same time being open and inclusive of organizations that are supportive of TAP’s work, but who may be unable to make explicit commitments to helping advance TAP’s work.

Organizations are encouraged to apply to become a TAP Network Partner, and submit their commitments to implementing SDG16 and to accountability for the 2030 Agenda. By making a commitment and elevating your organization to become a TAP Network partner, your will be showcased enjoy a number of benefits, which you can find outlined on our website at . In addition to these benefits, your organization and your commitment will be showcased on the TAP Network website, and in any future resources that the TAP Network publishes.

Outlining your commitment: 
What kinds of commitments are expected of TAP Network Partners?
TAP Network Partners are expected to outline their commitment to implementing SDG16 or towards accountability for the 2030 Agenda more broadly. These commitments should be clear and succinct and have very clear objectives. The more specific organizations can be when submitting commitments, the stronger the commitment and subsequent follow-up will be. Since these commitments will be showcased publicly, it is important to highlight the great work and realistic but lofty ambitions of your organization, and to clearly outline how you will go about implementing this commitment. Again, this commitment should outline your organization’s commitment to SDG16 and the 2030 Agenda itself, and not your work with the TAP Network more specifically. It is also important for these commitments to fit the S.M.A.R.T. criteria: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound.

* 4. Please provide a BRIEF summary of your commitment (maximum 100 words):
(This should be a succinct overview of your overall commitment that can be easily communicated.) 

* 5. Please outline your organization’s priorities and work in relation to your commitment in greater detail (maximum 500 words)
(This should provide any details you'd like to include about your commitment, including your objectives, work plan, timeline or even a theory of change. This will be an important opportunity to share and showcase your work with your fellow partners and external stakeholders.)
