The COVID19 Pandemic highlights the need for effective accountability now. Transparency, Accountability and Participation Network (TAP) along with a core group conformed by Forus, Global Call Against Poverty & Together 2030 and multi-stakeholder partnership mobilizing accountability actors from a wide range of sectors launched The Campaign for a Decade of Accountability for the SDGs on May 27th in order to support accountability for the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.
The Campaign will look to bolster concerted action and amplify efforts to hold duty bearers to account for their commitments to sustainable development in a coordinated manner. To do this, the campaign will look engage a wide range of stakeholder communities – all of whom serve as a critical piece of the accountability puzzle for the SDGs. The Campaign is complementary to the “Decade of Action and Delivery” agreed upon by governments at the 2019 SDGs Summit, and is intended to ensure that governments live up to their commitments to advance the 2030 Agenda at all levels.
The main actions in which you can get involved:
