Life-Cycle Stages Of A Multi-Stakeholder Action Network
•Map issue and stakeholders •Define value proposition •Convene a stewardship group •Establish guiding approach •Secure seed funding/resources •Identify potential early victories

•Implement strategies to achieve early wins •Engage additional key stakeholders •Formulate TOC and Action Agenda •Monitoring, Assessment, and Learning •Establish support structures and processes, including communications platform •Develop resourcing model and raise core funds for enhancement phase

•Evaluate connectivity, vibrancy, EFFICACY •Decide to transform or transition •If transition as MSAN, refine/redefine value proposition, and return to catalyzing phase •If transformation, evolve to non-multistakeholder initiative and distribute reusable assets for scaled impact

•Institutionalize successes/diversify goals •Deepen and broaden key strategies •Monitor, learn, and course correct •Improve support structures and processes (geographically & functionally) •Execute sustainable business model •Build enduring connectivity and vibrancy

GIFT Approach
The work streams
1. Aligning Incentives
1. Advancing Global Norms/Guidance •

The modus operandi
Action agenda…looking for high leverage and scaled impact over time, with sequencing from potential early victories to more ambitious opportunities and outcomes Mutual recognition, collaborative engagement and sufficient consensus among stakeholders to determine priority outcomes and action agendas over time Support structures and processes that remain nimble and adaptive to seize emergent opportunities while optimizing transparency and inclusiveness Collective monitoring, learning, assessment and course-correction for efficiency and effectiveness

1. Technical Assistance & Capacity Building
1. Harnessing New Technologies

GIFT Action Agenda

 Global agenda-setting and profile-raising in key fora  Institutionalization of HLPs, contributions to coherence
 

across standards and assessments with increased focus on good practices – UNGA Resolution Process Led by Brazil/Philippines Further development and agreement of norms/guidance in gap areas (legislatures, participation, open data, etc.) Specific activities/tactics to strengthen incentives such as engaging the private sector and strengthening links between aid and fiscal transparency, new technologies and fiscal transparency. Technical assistance/capacity building and harnessing new technologies working groups identification of potential early victories linked to norms and incentives frameworks Engagement of key stakeholders and institutions (OGP, G20, INTOSAI, IPU, EITI, ICGFM, etc.) Involvement of 10-20 committed and action-oriented governments to demonstrate progress and share good practices.

GIFT - What It Is Not

 A Standard-Setting Body

 An Implementing Agency
 A Capacity-Building Organization

Gift Early Wins

 Political Champions  State of Field Baseline Reports  Common Knowledge Base Developing and Expanding  High Level Principles Formulated – UNGA Process  Presentation to G20 ACWG

 Draft Normative Guidance on Legislatures/Public

Participation  Informing Revision and Updating of IMF Code, PEFA, OBI  Increasing Engagement from Key Stakeholders (governments, audit institutions, parliamentary associations, etc.)  Framework and Action Agenda on Strengthening Incentives

GIFT Structures/Resources

 Limited expansion of multi-stakeholder stewardship group

based on deep commitment to value proposition, principles, working approach, collaborative action agenda  Engagement of other key stakeholders through action agenda – working groups, targeted opportunities, etc.  Nimble coordination and technical support team (including secondments from Stewards)  Multi-stakeholder resource mobilization (funds/in-kind)

*no stakeholder contributes a majority of total of resources

*“swing funds” to respond to windows of opportunity that warrant quick multi-stakeholder action
