Goal 16 Progress Report
If we can’t measure it, we can’t improve it. Join us as we ensure that Goal 16 is measured and concrete steps are taken towards its achievement.
Last year, we celebrated the success of peace organisations worldwide in securing the inclusion of Goal 16 – the ‘Peace Goal’ – in the Sustainable Development Goal 16 framework. It was an important recognition that peace is essential for development, as much as development is essential to peace. However, having a goal is only the first step. We need to ensure that Goal 16 is measured, and that concrete steps are taken towards its achievement all the while holding Governments to account.
Read on to find out more about the Goal 16 Progress Report and to take action.
What is Goal 16?
Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals is dedicated to the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the provision of access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels.
The Goal 16 Progress Report presents a detailed analysis of available data to measure the goal and its targets. It also measures progress achieved to date, country by country. Findings highlight the major challenges facing Goal 16, including methodological issues, political challenges, as well as practical implementation issues around data collection and statistical capacity that if not addressed may undermine the achievement of the goal.
Join us as we ensure that Goal 16 is measured and concrete steps are taken towards its achievement. Help us raise awareness of Goal 16 by downloading the report, viewing the Goal 16 dashboard, and importantly, sharing on Facebook and Twitter.
