In 2015 the NYDF Assessment Partners were formed as an independent civil-society initiative to monitor progress towards the NYDF’s global goals. What started as a coalition of 6 organizations has grown into a strong and diverse group of 25 members, with an even higher number of external collaborators.
Just as achieving the NYDF goals will require joint effort, assessing progress toward the NYDF goals necessitates collaboration between a multitude of organizations. The NYDF Assessment Partners share the aim of promoting transparency and encouraging progress toward meeting the NYDF. The partners draw on their collective expertise to provide scientific and independent assessments that, combined, provide a more complete and robust picture of total progress toward meeting the NYDF. In addition, they form a coordinated front for research, outreach, and advocacy, forming a powerful coalition that is stronger than the sum of its parts.
