Current Commitment to SDG16+
Summary of commitment:
SDG 16+ is THE MUST HAVE for 2030 Agenda and realize other SDGs. It is so important to have strong institutions at the local level. It is so important to work for have more citizen participation. But it’s just crazy to see the way that we work for sectoral SDGs and don’t do the necessary for SDG 16. It’ not possible to get results on health, education climate change or other area if we don’t have good governance. The transformation that we want for 2030 will be not possible if we don’t have a clear strategy and approach regarding SDG16.
