CSPPS-member GPPAC shares SDG16 Toolkit

The international community is behind and in some places regressing in pursuit of Goal 16 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – SDG16 – which relates to peace, justice and strong institutions. We are currently off track to leave no one behind. One thing we learned from implementing the first edition of our Ready for Review project this year was how much civil society from fragile countries has to say about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) when asked about the level of progress achieved at the local or national level.

However, we also noticed that in most cases, there still remains a lot of confusion surrounding the question of how exactly local civil society can participate, contribute to and make itself heard within the context of government-led multi-stakeholder consultations, also known as Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs).

To achieve this the localisation of the SDGs is essential: it is up to governments, organisations and individuals to turn the goals into concrete actions at the local and national level.

This is where CSPPS-member GPPAC's new SDG16 Toolkit comes in handy. GPPAC's flowchart helps peacebuilding actors to do this by guiding you through a series of key steps in a comprehensive way.
