Keep Track of Progress

For effectively implementing transformative measures in your city, it is essential to also review and monitor their progress and impact. Not only does this allow for adjustments, if needed, it will also help you to better demonstrate what you are actually (already) doing for the achievement of global agendas – both to national and international partners as well as to your city’s inhabitants.

The tools from this step will thus help you to align existing monitoring systems with global targets and indicators and/or to set up effective monitoring and evaluation processes, ideally linked to national review mechanisms.
