Current Commitment to SDG16+
Summary of commitment:
AfroLeadership is committed to building on SDG16+. We have built an open data platform and we would like to develop this platform to monitor SDG implementation in general, and SDG16 specifically. This platform could serve to evaluation the efforts made by Cameroon in implementing SDG16, and SDG in general.
Organization's priorities and work in relation to commitment:
AfroLeadership has the belief that there is a serious need to get information and evidences to monitor SDG implementation in Africa. So our priorities in this round will be to trained CSOs on Data Collection, Data Analysis, and Data Reports. We will base our work on developing Data Literacy on SDG16+. So, we hope to train about 10 CSOs in next 12 months on data collection, analysis and reports, around topics related to SDG16, and more generally on the SDGs.
Organization's work related to TAP network's SGD16+ work & accountability for 2030 Agenda:
AfroLeadership is part of the global movement for open data and budget transparency, accountability and citizen participation. We are currently building an open data platform on how to account on the implementation of SDGs. It is actually a citizen platform that we aim at replicating regionally in countries where AfroLeadership has a chapter. This is in line with transparent and open institutions.

Reports on Organization's Past Commitments
Our original commitment was linked mainly to building a francophone TAP Network. This network has not been set up as planned because of lack of funding and resources. We renew our commitment even for building a regional TAP Network in Central Africa as a start. As a matter of work, we have actually improved our workings by developing our chapters in several countries, as they could be a backbone for TAP Network. We would like to build a platform on TAP Network in francophone Africa, to call upon organisations and CSOs to join TAP.
