Lessons on Monitoring and Reporting from the MDGs and Other Major Processes
This paper provides an overview of strengths, weaknesses and lessons from monitoring and review processes to support the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the UN Human Rights Commission’s system of Universal Periodic Reviews (UPR). The paper aims to provide highlights from these processes that can inform the design of similar frameworks in the post-2015 development agenda. The paper includes:
Section 1: Overview of key lessons and themes from across the four selected processes;
Section 2: Literature review of strengths and weaknesses of each process with regards to monitoring, reporting, and use of results to improve implementation;
Section 3: Conclusions and key questions to consider for post-2015.
A partnership formed in 2012, the Independent Research Forum (IRF) played an influential role as the Sustainable Development Goals evolved.
