Governance as an SDG Accelerator

Country Experiences and Tools

image of Governance as an SDG Accelerator

Delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a formidable governance challenge for countries at all levels of development. It requires governments to co-ordinate, consult and work across policy areas – as well as with the businesses sector and civil society – in an unprecedented way. This report provides evidence from OECD countries and partner economies on how public governance practices can be strengthened to help implement the SDGs. It looks at whole-of-government co-ordination, policy coherence and integrity, stakeholder engagement and open government, and the strategic use of budgeting, procurement and regulatory tools. It discusses robust monitoring and evaluation systems for ensuring that public policies and resource allocations for SDG implementation result in meaningful outcomes. It also explores how governance frameworks to support equal access to justice and gender equality can help catalyse implementation across the entire 2030 Agenda.

Monitoring, evaluation and audit institutions

Monitoring and evaluation systems are essential for assessing to what extent policies and resource allocations for implementing the SDGs result in meaningful outcomes. This chapter illustrates ways in which solid monitoring and evaluation systems, and the strategic use of the information they generate throughout the policy and budget cycle, can foster a range of objectives such as policies’ value for money, accountability, and overall transparency of a policy-making process. Sound monitoring and evaluation systems become even more important given the complex and interconnected nature of the SDGs.
