Read and Endorse the Joint Statement on SDG16+ during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Following up on the SDG16+ Global Community side-event during the 2020 HLPF, we are excited to share with you the "Act for SDG16+" Statement, jointly drafted by the global SDG16+ Community partners. This Global Call-to-Action calls for an increased focus from governments, the UN System and all stakeholders towards advancing SDG16+, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a community, we are convinced that SDG16+ is more important than ever before, and will be critical to response, recovery and rebuilding efforts from COVID-19, and will help to strengthen the resiliency of our institutions and societies to resist future crises or shocks in the future. Sign-on and endorsements are currently open for this Statement, and you can endorse this statement through your organizations via the google form here. We would highly encourage all TAP Partners and Members to endorse this Call-to-Action Statement, as it will help maximize our reach and impact as a community.
