A small secretariat will be established for CHANGE which will be responsible for the network’s monitoring and evaluation framework.
Given the differences and similarities between the co-founding cities, it is crucial that the work of the network and related projects and initiatives can be tailored to specific city contexts to ensure impact and success. Each city will therefore tailor its pilot initiatives or programmes according to their own context, using CHANGE’s mission statement as a core, guiding principle. Given the global adoption and widespread use of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the network will use the common language of SDG Goal 5 to standardise metrics and track progress. Once projects have been implemented, cities will have up to one year to report on data-driven results, and a report will summarise lessons learned
