The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted unanimously by the 193 United Nations Member States in September 2015 to guide global and national development policies to 2030.

SDG16 commits all countries 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

Achieving SDG16 – and all 17 goals – will require unprecedented problem solving and mobilization of governments, businesses, and civil society. Concord will collect existing global data that can inform the development of measurable indicators that reflects the ambitions aspirations of the SDGs, as well as the practical challenges of implementing statistical mechanisms of measuring governance at a global level.
