About this Conference
In September 2016, The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA), together with the original 16+ Forum Partners, announced the Annual Showcase, a collective undertaking to showcase SDG 16+ in action–what does implementation look like, how to go about it, and lessons learned. Held on a yearly basis, the Annual Showcase takes place in a 16+ Forum member country and features one flagship theme. Each opens with a focus on the host country, while then broadening the lens to include a variety of county and regional contexts.
The Annual Showcase provides a yearly opportunity to highlight steps taken at national and local levels towards SDG 16+ implementation, inclusive of challenges, successes and solutions. Through civil society capacity-building sessions, field visits, and panel and breakout discussions, this multi-day conference allows participants to share best practices, challenges, and solutions in SDG 16+ implementation, reinforce collective commitment, and strengthen efforts to realize and build a movement for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies.
