The Global Alliance for Reporting Progress on Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies (SDG 16 Alliance) is a coordinating platform for Member States, private sector and civil society organisations (CSOs) to work together for peace, justice, and strong institutions. It is an institutional innovation within the international system.
The Alliance is operated by 7 Member States, 3 CSOs, and 3 businesses. Its work is supported by a Secretariat co-facilitated by UNDP, UNODC, UNESCO, OHCHR, UNHCR, UN-Women,and the Global Compact: a UN Advisory Group composed of 10 UN Agencies, and a large and growing number of partners from other governments, CSOs and business around the world.
What we do
The Alliance helps governments to conduct the participatory planning, monitoring and reporting which draws together all communities and data from all parts government, civil society and private sector –enabling the evidence-based and joint action needed for transformative change.
The UN General Assembly was explicit:
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development can only be achieved if government, civil society and private sector unite and are supported by a UN and international system that works together to help them to achieve the goals they set.
The Global Alliance is the international system’s only multi-stakeholder platform for joint decision-making and action at the global and national level.
How we do it
The Alliance uses the reporting framework of the 2030 Agenda as a ‘hook’ to drive the evidence-based and multi-stakeholder action necessary for progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The data needed to report progress on SDG 16—the peace, justice, and strong institutions that underpin all the SDGs—is located in various parts of government, civil society, private sector and international institutions.
