This contribution highlights an initiative of a consortium of think tanks from Europe and the Global South that work together to promote policy coherence and developing analytical and methodological approaches to analyse, advocate, monitor and evaluate policy coherence in the context of the 2030 Agenda. It emphasises that the implementation of the 2030 Agenda requires a new, networked approach to assessing PCSD, and tools that help decision-makers think and break out of the traditional policy silos, examples of which are presented throughout this chapter.
