To support Governments in early stage identification and selection of projects suitable to be delivered on a PPP basis, the ESCAP secretariat has developed a Qualitative Value-For- Money Toolkit. Based on international best practice and experiences, the toolkit is designed for screening PPP projects across developing countries in Asia and the Pacific. It contains a set of criteria that Government officials need to consider when assessing whether a project is likely to achieve Value-for- Money (VfM) if delivered as a PPP.

To fully implement and monitor progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, decision makers everywhere need data and statistics that are accurate, timely, sufficiently disaggregated, relevant, accessible and easy to use. The Open SDG Data Hub promotes the exploration, analysis, and use of authoritative SDG data sources for evidence-based decision-making and advocacy. Its goal is to enable data providers, managers and users to discover, understand, and communicate patterns and interrelationships in the wealth of SDG data and statistics that are now available.
