Partnerships2030

Promoting the rule of law at national and international level and ensuring that all citizens have access to justice is the intent of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 – Peace, justice and strong institutions. Only peaceful and inclusive societies have the will to safeguard human rights, prevent the overexploitation of resources and protect their poorest members. What is required is reliable forms of governance with transparent and accountable institutions. In this context, multi-stakeholder partnerships can provide key impetus.

A good example of how a MAP can advocate for SDG 16 is the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) presented here. At its core, EITI is a global standard for transparent management of a country’s fossil and mineral resources.
