This Policy Brief argues that the citizen-led assessment approach should be used to implement, monitor and establish country owned accountability mechanisms for the post-2015 development agenda.

International IDEA’s State of Democracy, State of Local Democracy and Democratic Accountability Assessment Frameworks (developed as global public goods) offer a basis for designing such a framework.

The Mongolia experience provides a practical example of how it is possible to assess progress in the achievement of democracy and democratic governance goals. It illustrates how using citizen-led approaches can ensure that an ‘inclusive and people-centred’ approach to developing the post-2015 development agenda is upheld in its implementation and monitoring.
