Dear friends! Within the framework of the project “Involvement of civil society institutions in the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Kazakhstan,” our organization is conducting continuous outreach work on this topic as a whole.
We continue to inform you of different goals. The theme of today’s publication is SDG 16, Peace, Justice and Sustainable Institutions. This topic is one of the most relevant for ensuring a fair society for all, and the role of civil society is very important here! But in order to go to this more professionally and competently, you need to know about the content of this Goal in the global dimension.
We offer you official information about this from the UN website. https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/ru/peace-justice/
Purpose 16. Promoting a peaceful and inclusive society for sustainable development, ensuring access to justice for all and establishing effective, accountable and participatory institutions at all levels
To help build peaceful and inclusive societies, the problems of homicide, violence against children, trafficking and sexual violence must be addressed. Only by addressing these challenges can we pave the way for access to justice for all and the effective establishment of accountable institutions at all levels.
Although the number of homicide and trafficking cases has declined significantly over the past decade, thousands of people are at greater risk of intentional homicide in Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Violations of children’s rights as a result of aggression and sexual violence continue to occur in many countries of the world, as a result of impunity and lack of data, which seriously exacerbates the problem.
More effective and transparent regulations, as well as comprehensive, adequate public spending, are needed to address these challenges and build more peaceful, inclusive societies. One of the first steps to protect individual rights is the introduction of birth registration systems and the establishment of more independent national human rights institutions around the world.
