16 Plus Forum

Goal 16

Promote just, peaceful & inclusive societies

About the Platform

In April 2016, The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) launched the 16+ Forum, a platform committed to SDG 16+ and to showcasing what it means to advance peaceful, just and inclusive societies in policy and practice at all levels and for a wide community of stakeholders–governments, civil society, the UN, regional and international organizations, academia, private sector and media.

As the core of the 2030 Agenda’s Peaceful, Just and Inclusive pillar, SDG 16+ offers a catalytic opportunity to fully realize the 2030 Agenda, as an integrated and mutually-reinforcing whole focused on advancing government accountability, building trust, and sustaining peace.

Through its gatherings, events and publications, the 16+ Forum facilitates dialogue and exchange, capturing lessons learned while convening a variety of stakeholders to advance meaningful and universal implementation of SDG 16+ and our collective efforts to ensure that no one is left behind.

  • A platform dedicated to SDG16+
  • SDG 16 as a link across the 2030 Agenda
  • Events, publications, conferences, and more
