Voices of SDG 16+: Stories of Global Action

Reports on Organization's Past Commitments

World Vision was actively engaged in the process leading up to the adoption of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and its SDGs. WV continues to be highly engaged in contributing to achieving the SDGs at national level and track its progress at global level. This engagement is based on its work in fragile states and those most left behind, particularly children. Accountability has been a main advocacy action at national, regional and global level. Consequently, TAPĀ“s work focusing on Goal 16 and an overall accountability agenda fits well in both programmatic work as well as advocacy and global policy setting work.
