Goal 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

Goal 16 is to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

 Icon goal 16

No permanent progress can be achieved in a context marked by violence, conflict and the threat of violence.

They constitute the basis of good governance including anti-corruption measures, and are important driving forces for development.
