Youth-led Monitoring of the Global Goals Toolkit

In partnership with Plan UK, African Monitor and YES-Ghana, Restless Development is leading the delivery of youth-led monitoring and accountability of the Global Goals through the Big Idea Accountability Advocates Project, co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Commission.

Between April 2015 and June 2016, we will be working with 20 young leaders from youth-led community-based organisations in Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Malawi, Kenya and the UK to act as Accountability Advocates. The Accountability Advocates, with the support of training and mentorship by national experts, have been tasked with designing and implementing a national monitoring framework, which they can use to hold their government accountable to implementing the new Global Goals.

To support the Accountability Advocates and their organisations to play a meaningful role in the monitoring of the Global Goals, we have developed a step-by-step toolkit, which equips young people with a range of practical tools, resources and information to develop their own national accountability framework.

This toolkit has been designed to be adaptable to any participatory accountability efforts, from the local up to the global level, so please do take a look if you’re interested in developing your skills in social accountability.
