All programmes are designed to support Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 & SDG 8, while SDG 7 and SDG 9 will apply to a subset of programmes operating in those sectors. The “Monitoring, Reporting, Evaluation & Learning” section of the Prosperity Fund: Annual Report 2017-18 (pg14) outlines portfolio indicators, which will help measure Fund impacts, and often relate directly to SDG ambitions. The Fund has contracted a specialist consortium to provide independent and objective evaluation of how well programmes are contributing to their stated outcomes, impacts, and relevant SDG.
