The Forum launched over 1,000 commitments with an aggregate estimated value of US$40 Billion in financial commitments.

Accountability for Action

Title
ACCOUNTABILITY FOR ACTION

Subtitle

Accountability and transparency are critical to the success of Generation Equality. For the initiative to achieve meaningful progress, Action Coalition Leaders, Commitment Makers and Compact Signatories must report transparently on their commitments and demonstrate that they have met their promises for women and girls.

Through a consultative process UN Women has established Accountability Frameworks for the Action Coalitions and Compact. These frameworks and processes will help to show progress on the delivery of commitments and generate data for analysis. The qualitative and quantitative data that will be made available will enable global advocacy efforts and help ensure an inclusive accountability process for Generation Equality.
