Enabling the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda through SDG 16+

This report seeks to provide an overview of global SDG 16+ action, illustrating SDG 16+ progress and country experiences and the perspectives of multiple stakeholders active on 16+. The report uses the term ‘SDG 16+’, that has been coined to reflect the linkages between goals and targets beyond SDG 16 that embody commitments to peace, justice, and inclusion across all the SDGs. By focusing on SDG 16+, this report recognizes the interdependent nature of SDG 16, its 12 targets and the 24 other targets of other SDGs that directly measure an aspect of peace, justice and inclusion. Multi-stakeholder partnerships are key to delivering on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is no less true for SDG 16+, which serves as an enabler and accelerator for all SDGs. The issue of reporting on peace, justice and inclusion is fundamental to the sustainable development goals. Whatever countries are trying to achieve across the SDGs has to involve key elements of SDG 16+, including effective institutions, participatory decision-making, access to justice for all, a reduction in violence, tackling corruption and access to information. All of the key parts of SDG 16+ are at the fore in the implementation of Agenda 2030.
