0. Introducing the Step

It is proposed to adopt a three layer Partnership Governance framework:

  • federated and light at the strategic layer - principle driven
  • more detailed at the tactical - system driven - layer
  • adapted to local conditions at the operational - tool driven - layer
For each layer the architectural materials and their governance are described in the table below:
Layer Architectural materials Governance approach Governance repository characteristics
Strategic Principles that offer guidance to the different stakeholder groups. Each actor/role is assigned under a stakeholder group, and is expected to know its principles and their impact in sample ''decision'' cases Periodic review, with changes if needed, by the UN General Assembly. Period is 4 years. Wiki in the public domain, documenting the principles for the various stakeholder groups e.g. Rio Principles
Tactical Objectives, indicators and targets that are agreed for each ISIC1 and COFOG2 class, aware of local capability maturity3 and competence4. Each actor/role is assigned to a class and is aware of own capability maturity or competence. Yearly reporting with adjusting of targets in accordance with observed treaths and innovations that have emerged in the past year. Each class is under governance of one specialized organisation of the UN. Cross class conflicts on mutually dependent objectives and targets are addressed in open consultations organized by the governing bodies. If these cannot resolve the conflict, it is escalated to a public consultation with decision by the UN General Assembly or an arbitration body assigned by it. Per class, the maps listed at the Actor Atlas; COFOG and ISIC
Operational Implementation options are defined for the capability maturity levels (with related tooling and performance expectations for the relevant objectives) Self governance, coaching, peer-learning among actors with comparable maturity/competence levels, benchmarking. Learning management system; note taking and reviewing specific to the technological circumstances and the capability maturity or competence
For this step, the partners are divided as follows:
Class of partners Partners in this class Ref.
Core partners The United Nations, National governments, local authorities, International institutions, large firms Group A
Soft partners Small- and medium-sized firms, Citizens
Extended partners Civil society organisations, Philanthropists, Social impact investors, Scientists and academics
Communities involved Meso Roles, e.g. those listed in the Actor Atlas Meso roles list
