Joining the TAP Network

The TAP Network’s engagement structures are broken down into two main categories: “Partners” and “Members,” with each enjoying very different sets of privileges and benefits. These various options for organizations provide a responsive yet flexible engagement structure that enables TAP to identify key implementation partners to support its work, while at the same time being open and inclusive of organizations that are supportive of TAP’s work, but who may be unable to make explicit commitments to helping advance TAP’s work. 

Become a TAP Network Partner

TAP Network Partners are organizations that take part in the substantive work of the TAP Network, and make explicit commitments to implementing SDG16 or towards accountability for the 2030 Agenda. In exchange for making these commitments, “Partners” enjoy an exclusive set of benefits and privileges, and can benefit from direct support from the TAP Network - both technical and financial.

Become a TAP Network Member

TAP Network Members are organizations that can register to stay up-to-date on TAP’s work and can loosely contribute to taking TAP’s substantive work forward. They are able to share in the information and intel-sharing and general updates that the TAP Network has become known for, and have access to a listserv of hundreds of experts on SDG16 and the 2030 Agenda.

TAP Network

TAP Network “Partners” are organizations that are explicitly committed to helping take TAP’s agenda and work forward, and are identified as TAP’s key champions and go-to implementation partners. These Partners make specific commitments outlining their work to advance the overall mission and objectives of the TAP Network – particularly working around SDG16 or accountability for the 2030 Agenda – and pledge to report on their commitment in the future. Partners are expected to report on their progress towards these commitments every two years, with interim mid-term reports uploaded onto the TAP Network website every year. 


In addition to having their organization’s work and their commitments showcased prominently on the TAP Network’s website, TAP Network Partners enjoy a number of privileges and benefits as a result of their commitment to TAP’s work.

TAP Network

TAP Network “Members” are organizations that are interested in benefiting from the information and intel-sharing and updates from the TAP Network, but may not have the capacity or desire to engage with TAP’s substantive work explicitly. Members benefit from having access to the general membership listerv, which consists of hundreds of organizations and individual advocates for SDG16 and the 2030 Agenda more broadly. TAP Network Members will be identified on the TAP Network website, however the work of their organizations will not be showcased in the same way that TAP Network “Partners” will be featured.
