The SDG 16+ Community is a group of countries, civil society organizations, international organizations, and global partnerships working to implement SDG 16+ and the 2030 Agenda’s goals on peace, justice and inclusion. In response to the pandemic, we have come together in solidarity to offer a platform for building more peaceful, just and inclusive societies for all.

The UN Secretary-General has stressed that we need to “build back better”, guided by the principle of universality and the commitment to leave no one behind enshrined in the Sustainable Development Goals. Together, we call on governments, the international community and leaders in every sector to urgently make SDG16+ the foundation for reset and recovery efforts, and for building more resilient societies and institutions going forward. Please find below our "Act Now on SDG 16+" statement that we encourage ALL relevant stakeholders to become signatories of.
