Democracy & Development

Now that the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda has been adopted, the Community is working with UN Member States to support their efforts to implement Goal 16 at the national level.

The Permanent Secretariat is collaborating with the United Nations Development Program and Open Government Partnership to develop a set of supplemental indicators that governments can choose to use in their monitoring processes.

These indicators, which will complement those developed by the United Nations, are intended to cover all 12 targets under Goal 16, which includes peace, justice and other topics associated with democracy and human rights.

It is hoped that the indicators will be widely adopted after they are tested during a pilot phase in five countries.
