Monitoring of SDGs: To ensure that interventions to implement SDGs are on track, and in building local capacity for more responsive and accountable governance.

Achieving the SDGs requires robust monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of frameworks in order to track progress and ensure accountability.

A stable and easy to use M&E system can help governments improve their management and governance processes. The challenge for most governments is in developing local M&E systems that are affordable yet complete.

The disaggregated social, economic and demographic data at sub-national levels derived from M&E system can be leveraged to make critical real or near-time decisions, which will enable making correct choices on allocating resources and interventions for achieving desired outcomes.

Dissemination of SDG data to a larger audience can promote transparency and through this facilitates better decision-making and accountability. It also gives external researchers, professionals, and citizens the opportunities to develop research, policy recommendations, and technological innovations and tools that can directly strengthen local governance.

M&E system will help aggregate SDG outcomes at the national and sub-national levels, compare SDG progress between different geographies and areas of development, and also help in dissemination of data for good.
