The finding is based on the LNOB Nepal consortium’s initiative on SDG monitoring adopting Community Score Card (CSC) focusing specific indicators under SDG goals 4, 5, 10, 13, 16, and 17 considering dire needs on improving progress on these goals. As part of the community scorecard, community people and local government authorities make efforts in identifying progress and gaps in achieving Sustainable Development Goals. In the process of CSC, separate rankings are prepared for communities, duty bearers and there was a commonly agreed score based on interface meeting between the right holders and duty bearers. The differences in rating present condition by right holders and duty bearers’ claim and future expectations on changes by both groups were later adjusted based on mutual understanding and discussion in the interface discussions. It indicates that this community-led participatory monitoring supports in providing more realistic tracking of the progress and expectations to avoid future conflict and promote collaboration and trust.

4. Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning
Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development. Major progress has been made towards increasing access to education at all levels and increasing enrolment rates in schools particularly for women and girls. Basic literacy skills have improved tremendously, yet bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides for achieving universal education goals. For example, the world has achieved equality in primary education between girls and boys, but few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education.
