SDG 16 | Peace and Justice Strong Institution

Goal 16 | Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels

Evidence shows that without peaceful and inclusive communities and effective governance, development cannot be sustainable. For example, conflict-affected countries are the furthest away from achieving the MDGs, whereas in many other countries the re-establishment of peace and accountable institutions has contributed greatly to achieving the MDGs. Goal 16 for 2030, therefore, aims to promote peaceful and inclusive societies. As such, it advocates reducing all forms of violence, ending torture and combating all forms of organised crime. In addition, Goal 16 envisages significantly reducing corruption and bribery as well as illicit financial and arms flows. To ensure that societies are peaceful and inclusive, Goal 16 also aims to promote inclusive institutions and the rule of law and guarantee equal access to justice.
