Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals seeks to promote peaceful and inclusive societies, provide access to justice for all, and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions. In doing so, it sets out an ambitious vision of governance, peace and security, and accountability that will invigorate the work of all development actors in the years ahead. The 2016 seminar examined the many challenges, complexities, sensitivities, and ambiguities contained in Goal 16. It featured focused and practical sessions on tackling illicit flows; on making progress with Goal 16 in contexts of conflict and protracted crisis; on balancing the Goal 16 themes of peace and security, on the one hand, and governance and development on the other; and on measuring progress with Goal 16.
