Just published - Governance for Sustainable Development Volume 8: SDG 16 and its Interlinkages with other SDGs – Challenges and Opportunities

Image
This is the eighth book by the Friends of the Governance for Sustainable Development. The chapters in this book are based on some of the presentations made at the workshop ‘SDG 16 and its Interlinkages with other SDGs – Challenges and Opportunities.’ SDG 16 stands as a cornerstone in this integrated framework, when “structural injustices, inequalities and emerging human rights challenges are putting peaceful and inclusive societies further out of reach” (2023, SDG Report).  The workshop was organized in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme and hosted by the Permanent Mission of Romania to the United Nations in New York, focusing on providing an open space for Member States to discuss issues that they would be addressing later this year or next and having the chance to hear what experts think is useful for their consideration.  We expect the present publication to be a useful input for the ongoing discussions about the institutional architecture for the 2030 Agenda
