As world leaders prepare to advance international development finance at the July 2017 Group of 20 (G20) Summit, we suggest the GF as a template for funding research, development, and scale-up of interventions in both health and nonhealth areas of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which replaced MDGs in 2016.

  • Indicators and a Monitoring Framework for FfD: Proposals for Follow-up and Review of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda

    This paper considers what aspects of the AAAA are already being monitored by the SDG indicator framework and identifies gaps, before reviewing a sample set of issues that should be measured using additional AAAA-specific indicators. It also presents options for establishing an indicator-based global monitoring process, as well as complementary monitoring processes at regional and national levels, and amongst non-governmental actors. It critically evaluates the feasibility of each option, setting out key recommendations for Member States.
