The Global Alliance for Reporting Progress on Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies is producing the SDG 16+ Report for HLPF 2019 (working title). 

The report seeks to provide an overview of existing analysis and experiences on SDG 16 gathered since 2015. While it will be launched at the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development in July this year, its key messages will already be presented at major events in the run-up to the HLPF. Read more about the report here. 

To shape the key messages of the report, the Global Alliance is keen to receive feedback on the report's emerging findings from a wide range of stakeholders. 

The following 'Key Actions for Country Progress on SDG 16+' are emerging from our research  (see here for a more detailed description of each):

  • Ensure implementation mechanisms for SDG 16+ are fit for purpose
  • Utilize human rights mechanisms to achieve the SDGs
  • Involve sub-national stakeholders
  • Partner and meaningfully involve a broad range of stakeholders
  • Invest politically and financially in data and statistics
  • Prioritise data disaggregation to ensure no one is left behind
  • Involve a broad range of data producers to address data gaps

We invite you to share your thoughts on these 'Key Actions':

  • Are they clear and well formulated?
  • Do they capture well the key challenges and opportunities countries face in achieving SDG 16+? Are these relevant? Are some missing? What is needed to open opportunities and overcome challenges?
  • Do you recommend we review additional material? If so, please explain why and provide a source.
