United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

logo sixteen peace justice and strong institutions

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.

In 2019, the number of people fleeing war, persecution and armed conflict exceeded 79.5 million  the highest number ever recorded.

Goal 16 includes strong, effective and accountable institutions, a free and democratic press,  non-discriminatory laws and policies, resistance to corruption, bribery and organised crime, and prevention of violence and terrorism, bringing peace and justice to society at large. Yet, in 2017, the world spent more than $1.7 trillion on arms and armies – the highest level since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
