Following a workshop earlier this year, bringing together a range of global partnerships, as well as senior governmental, multilateral and civil society representatives, Saferworld has published a briefing paper: Greater than the sum of our parts – global partnerships for Goal 16 (PDF, 441 KB). Its aim 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.” According to the paper, key action points for collective support are:
- Fill the gaps through developing new multi-stakeholder partnerships on issues not well covered by existing partnerships.
- Enhance coordination of existing partnerships through regular meetings, information exchange, and joint action on issues that affect them all.
- Create a new cross-Goal 16 initiative between stakeholders that are committed to widening support for a single and transformative vision of change.
- Establish a small group of champion countries that commit to accelerated domestic action on Goal 16 and to comprehensive national monitoring systems.
