16+ Forum

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

The core of the 2030 Agenda’s Peaceful, Just and Inclusive pillar, SDG 16 is one of the more innovative aspects of the development framework, focusing on advancing government accountability, building trust, and sustaining peace. In April of 2016, WFUNA launched the 16+ Forum, a platform to bring together governments, local and international civil society organizations (CSOs), members of the UN system, the private sector and academia to discuss efforts to implement SDG 16+ at the national, regional and local levels. The 16+ Forum is committed to SDG 16+ and to showcasing what it means to advance peaceful, just and inclusive societies in policy and practice for a wide community of stakeholders.  

In short, the 16+ Forum provides a platform to share best practices, while applying SDG 16+ as a lynchpin from which to explore and strengthen interlinkages across the 2030 Agenda, and to others, such as Sustaining Peace. Through its gatherings, events and publications, it facilitates dialogue and exchange, capturing lessons learned while convening a variety of stakeholders to advance meaningful and universal implementation of SDG 16+ and the 2030 Agenda.   

Created as a partnership between the Permanent Missions of Denmark, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Sweden, the Republic of Korea, Timor-Leste, Tunisia, the g7+ and WFUNA, the 16+ Forum has since grown and now also includes the Permanent Missions of Australia, the Czech Republic, Costa Rica, Georgia and Peru.   

With an eye to the 2019 High-Level Political Forum in July, the SDG Summit in September and beyond, the 16+ Forum, in collaboration with partner initiatives, platforms and networks, is furthering the movement for SDG 16+ and our collective efforts to ensure that no one is left behind.
