WFUNA launched the 16+ Forum in April 2016 to engage Member States, civil society organizations, UN agencies and other stakeholders on issues related to the 'peaceful, just and inclusive societies’ theme of the 2030 Agenda.
The inclusion of Goal 16 is one of the innovative aspects of the new development framework. The 16+ Forum provides an avenue to sustain attention on efforts to ensure Goal 16 and related issues remain in focus throughout the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
The 16+ Forum provides multistakeholder participants the opportunity to strengthen global efforts to communicate, implement, and monitor activities related to Goal 16 and the 2030 Agenda.
Additionally, the 16+ Forum will continue to explore interlinkages between Goal 16 and other SDGs, as well as connections with other related priorities throughout the United Nations System.
Learning from best practices, innovative efforts, and success stories, the 16+ Forum is a knowledge-sharing space for the community of interested actors.
