2022 Membership Engagement Survey

In an effort to help strengthen membership engagement throughout the TAP Network, we are happy to share with you the 2022 TAP Network Membership Engagement Survey, which we hope will provide an opportunity for you all to share your insights and reflections on how TAP can best engage with all of you in its work in the months and years to come. The survey will ask how you – TAP Partners and Members – would propose that improvements could be made to coordination, advocacy, learning and leadership - all elements that are at the foundation of a thriving and vibrant civil society network.

We're Hiring an Independent Consultant

The TAP Network is seeking a consultant(s) to conduct a detailed review of future hosting and governance options for TAP, as well as an evaluation of TAP’s work from the past two years (starting from 1 January 2020), dating back to the latest phase of its work following upon the 2019 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), and the election of the 2020-2021 TAP Network Steering Committee. This consultant will assess and provide an analysis of TAP’s current work and impact, as well as the effectiveness of the network’s membership engagement to-date, and will provide recommendations and options for the TAP Network to improve its work, based on the key areas extracted from the evaluation’s analysis.

Please see the Terms of Reference below and circulate the information to anyone who may be interested.

Endorse the 2022 Rome Declaration

This 2022 Addendum to the 2019 and 2021 versions of the Rome Civil Society Declaration raises the alarm on the further backsliding of SDG16+ and highlights what civil society stakeholders have identified as key areas where action is needed for peaceful societies to prosper. As civil society, we fear that if urgent action is not decided upon to propel greater action, governments and the international community will collectively fail to deliver on SDG16+ and the entire 2030 Agenda. SDG16+ is in peril, urgent action is needed now!

Highlight your organizations work through TAP Storytelling

Building upon our progress in 2021, TAP will continue to highlight the work of our Network in various new ways in 2022. If your organization wants to be featured through a blog post, video interview or creative storytelling medias, share your ideas through the interest form below.

Read and Endorse the Joint Statement on SDG16+ during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Following up on the SDG16+ Global Community side-event during the 2020 HLPF, we are excited to share with you the "Act for SDG16+" Statement, jointly drafted by the global SDG16+ Community partners. This Global Call-to-Action calls for an increased focus from governments, the UN System and all stakeholders towards advancing SDG16+, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a community, we are convinced that SDG16+ is more important than ever before, and will be critical to response, recovery and rebuilding efforts from COVID-19, and will help to strengthen the resiliency of our institutions and societies to resist future crises or shocks in the future. Sign-on and endorsements are currently open for this Statement, and you can endorse this statement through your organizations via the google form here. We would highly encourage all TAP Partners and Members to endorse this Call-to-Action Statement, as it will help maximize our reach and impact as a community.
