Monitoring & Evaluation, Discrimination, Inclusion & Equality

Prof.
Laila
El Baradei,
SDG 16 has many politically sensitive indicators, which is allowing governments (in this case – Egypt) to not self-report accurately. Including quantifiable targets and indicators for the SDGs helps citizens hold their governments accountable for the implementation of all the promises governments make to its citizens.
