About Us

The Transparency, Accountability & Participation (TAP) Network is a broad and influential network of over 300 civil society organizations (CSOs) that works around the UN’s 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals – with a particular focus on SDG16 on peace, justice, governance and strong institutions. The TAP Network collectively works to mobilize and empower civil society at all levels to work with and hold governments accountable to SDG16 commitments and the 2030 Agenda more broadly. 

The TAP Network engages some of the foremost expert organizations on the issues of transparency, accountability and participatory governance. TAP benefits from the invaluable expertise, experiences and unique perspectives of its members and partners, all of whom come together to collaborate on joint work and common positions under the TAP Network umbrella. This work is underpinned by recognition that we maximize reach and influence when many stakeholders speak with a unified voice.

The TAP Network’s over-arching goals are to support, contribute and strengthen capacity of civil society stakeholders to work on issues of transparency, accountability and participation in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda at the global and national levels, with a particular focus on SDG 16 which underpins the entirety of the 2030 Agenda. Through this work, the TAP Network aims to:


1. Provide the tools and support to civil society organizations (CSOs) to understand, work with, and hold governments accountable to SDG16 at all levels

2. Help CSOs hold governments accountable to the 2030 Agenda and SDGs, including through civil society reporting and engagement in National Voluntary Reviews

3. Mobilize, organize and help empower civil society working around SDG16 and 2030 Agenda accountability through regional and national-level coordination and collaboration
