Webinar: Measuring Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies: Online Launch of the Inaugural SDG16 Global Report (July 26)

To meet the ambition of the 2030 Agenda, the SDGs must be matched by equally comprehensive and inclusive data collection, monitoring and accountability measures. While national governments and specialized intergovernmental institutions will be responsible for official UN monitoring of the SDGs, supplementary data from nongovernmental sources – such as civil society organizations and research institutions – will also play a crucial role in providing the most complete and accurate picture possible of global progress. This is especially true of SDG16, with its 12 targets aimed at achieving the goal of promoting peaceful, just and inclusive societies.

Join us for the online launch of the inaugural annual SDG16 Data Initiative Global Report, curated by the SDG16 Data Initiative, a consortium of 14 organizations. This launch event presented the 2017 Global Report designed to support the open tracking of SDG16. The 2017 Global Report showcases global progress on SDG16 targets, best available data on all the SDG16 targets, and explores challenges and opportunities to filling data gaps and expanding the scope of measurement for the complex targets of SDG16 at all levels. The SDG16 Data Initiative also collects, curates, and communicates available data for SDG16 targets online at SDG16.org, while continuing to catalyze action through events and workshops throughout the year.

Speakers from the SDG16 Data Initiative and government representatives outlined key findings from the report and shared reflections on how this data can be used to achieve progress towards SDG16.

Human rights,stability and effective manner of governance and system of administration based on the “Rule of Law” and “Access to Justice” without peace and conflict resolution we can’t hope for sustainable development goals. We are surviving in growing larger and divided world. Some of the regions are really enjoying the sustained levels of peace, prosperity and security, while on the other hand rest of other regions are being through crucial circumstances which are apparently incessant repeated sequence of events of violence and conflict. Those regions are looking for resources for sustainability of peace and eradication of violence. Insecurity have an adverse and destructive impact due to armed violence of high level which ultimately influences a state/country’s development, growth of economy and development is also affected and resultantly it often brought up long term grievances that can lasts for upcoming generations. Sexual abuse/violence, exploitation, harassment, torture and crime are most dominant and widely accepted where there is conflict or no rule of law. The states/ countries must take security measurements to protect and secure those population or society who are most at risk. We need to acquire the durable solutions for sustainable development goals. Hope this webinar regarding “Measuring Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies” would be very fruitful to explore the more resources for peace sustainability to bring at least some prosperity in our lives.
