Greater than the sum of our parts: global partnerships for Goal 16
The purpose of this paper is to inform and guide discussion about how global multi-stakeholder partnerships can most effectively collaborate in support of the 2030 Agenda's commitment to peaceful, just and inclusive societies.
A draft of the paper was prepared as background for a workshop in London in March 2016, co-hosted by Saferworld and the UK and Netherlands governments. The workshop brought together a range of global partnerships, as well as senior governmental, multilateral and civil society representatives. The paper was refined on the basis of inputs, debates and outputs of the London workshop. It will inform the development of a strategy for global cooperation in support of Goal 16.
“Meeting Goal 16 targets will depend on whether domestic actors can agree on, and take forward, solutions that fit their national contexts – nevertheless, collective action at the global level will be essential to support national efforts.”Thomas Wheeler
