An efficient and effective programme should be developed based on solid evidence. There is always a paucity of data/evidence on which to design programmes. In many cases, however, even with abundance of data and evidence, it is difficult to assess what data gaps need to be addressed to ensure as much required data as possible is available and has been used to develop an evidence based programme. United Nations Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs ). The last goal of the SDGs, goal number 17, is on partnerships. Goal 17 has 5 targets including a target on â€œData, monitoring and accountabilityâ€ (UNDP, Sustainable Development Goals).
