The Transparency, Accountability & Participation (TAP) Network is a broad membership-driven network, representing a diverse range of civil society experts and practitioners on issues of peace, justice, inclusion and sustainable development at all levels. The TAP Network’s ultimate ambition is to help transform people, institutions and societies to support lasting change for a more peaceful, just, inclusive, accountable and sustainable world at all levels.
The TAP Network works on advancing implementation and monitoring for SDG16+ – aimed at Fostering Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies – and around ensuring accountability for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 2030 Agenda more broadly. The intrinsic link between SDG16+ and SDG accountability underpins all of TAP’s core work, with the strength and unique added-value of TAP lying in its global leadership to mobilize, coordinate and empower civil society stakeholders around the convergence of these issues at all levels.
TAP’s core objectives center around advancing collaboration and work towards three primary strategic goals:
Fostering a diverse, vibrant community of practice around TAP issues;
Improving SDGs/SDG16+ Localization and Capacity Building; and
Strengthening monitoring, data and accountability for SDG16+ and the 2030 Agenda.
Serving as a platform to bring together a wide range of civil society experts and activists around the SDGs, TAP works to help empower these partners by providing groundbreaking and innovative capacity building tools and programmes. To achieve these aims, the TAP Network receives contributions from some of the foremost expert organizations on the issues around SDG 16. The collaborative expertise, experience and perspectives of the members of the network allows them to develop common positions under the TAP Network umbrella. This approach is based on the premise that the reach and influence of stakeholders can be maximized when speaking with a unified voice.
