“8. We envisage a world of universal respect for human rights and human dignity, the rule of law, justice, equality and non-discrimination; of respect for race, ethnicity and cultural diversity; and of equal opportunity permitting the full realization of human potential and contributing to shared prosperity. A world which invests in its children and in which every child grows up free from violence and exploitation. A world in which every woman and girl enjoys full gender equality and all legal, social and economic barriers to their empowerment have been removed. A just, equitable, tolerant, open and socially inclusive world in which the needs of the most vulnerable are met.” 

Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UN, 2015)

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development also recognizes the need to ‘build peaceful, just and inclusive societies that provide equal access to justice’ (UN, 2015) and is based on ‘respect for human rights, on effective rule of law and good governance at all levels and on transparent, effective and accountable institutions’ (UN, 2019). 

SDG 16 – promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. 

SDG16 is an enabler for other SDGs and without a strong SDG16, the other SDGs will fail to be successfully delivered.

This workshop will look at the role of SDG16 in delivering: 

  • Good Health and Wellbeing (SDG3), 
  • Climate Change (SDG13) and a Green Energy Transition (SDG7)
  • Food System Security (SDG2)
