People-powered Accountability: Innovative Ideas for Monitoring Progress Beyond 2015 – DCF Side Event
The Fourth Biennial High-level Meeting of the Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) took place at the UN headquarters in New York on 10 – 11 July 2014. A range of stakeholders had the opportunity to participate in an open dialogue on the future of development cooperation in the post-2015 development agenda. As part of DCF activities, CIVICUS, Social Watch, and NSI organized a side event, People-powered Accountability: Innovative Ideas for Monitoring Progress Beyond 2015.
The side event was held from 1:15-2:45 on July 11th, 2014 (details here). Its primary objective was to explore the opportunities and risks of the ‘data revolution’ and how new technologies and innovative forms of citizen reporting could enhance national and global monitoring and accountability in the post-2015 framework. To contribute to this discussion, NSI presented initial findings from the Post-2015 Data Test.
