#SDG16 : Promote Peaceful & Inclusive Societies for Sustainable Development, Provide Access to Justice for All & Build Effective, Accountable & Inclusive Institutions at all Levels

This @UN #SDG is focused on facilitating #Peace, #Justice & Strong Institutions. #GlobalGoals #Tech4Good #DecadeOfAction

We cannot hope for sustainable development without peace, stability, human rights and effective governance, based on the rule of law. Yet our world is increasingly divided. Some regions enjoy peace, security and prosperity, while others fall into seemingly endless cycles of conflict and violence. This is not inevitable and must be addressed.

Armed violence and insecurity have a destructive impact on a country’s development, affecting economic growth, and often resulting in grievances that last for generations. Sexual violence, crime, exploitation and torture are also prevalent where there is conflict, or no rule of law, and countries must take measures to protect those who are most at risk

The SDGs aim to significantly reduce all forms of violence, and work with governments and communities to end conflict and insecurity. Promoting the rule of law and human rights are key to this process, as is reducing the flow of illicit arms and strengthening the participation of developing countries in the institutions of global governance.

The Moab Foundation is committed to doing its part by building a sustainable earth using digital technologies.
