Share your work, lessons learned, best practices and engagement opportunities to accelerate learning and sharing on SDG16+ amongst civil society

Complete and share the Global SDG16+ Survey

This survey is intended to collect reflections and insights from any interested stakeholder working to advance SDG16+ on Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies. This survey is broken up into two parts. The first page of this survey is intended to collect perceptions of progress towards SDG16+ at the national and global levels, and should take 2-3 minutes to complete. The second page is intended to collect perceptions on key challenges around SDG16+, along with collecting concrete recommendations from civil society for strengthening SDG16+ implementation going forward, and should take roughly 8-12 minutes to complete. The inputs into this survey will feed into: 1) The TAP Network’s “Halfway to 2030 Report on SDG16+”; 2) The 2023 Rome Civil Society Declaration on SDG16+ and 3) A Policy Brief on “SDG16+: Peace, Justice, Anti-corruption and Civic Space” for C20 inputs for the India G20 Summit in September 2023.

When: The final deadline to contribute to TAP Network’s “Halfway to 2030 Report on SDG16+” and a Policy Brief on “SDG16+: Peace, Justice, Anti-corruption and Civic Space” for C20 inputs for the India G20 Summit in September 2023 is 31 May 2023.  The survey will remain open throughout 2023 to contribute to other advocacy documents and publications.

Who: Any interested stakeholders.

Make a commitment to accelerate action on SDG16+

In the lead-up to the SDG Summit, TAP will continue to call for civil society organizations working around SDG16+ to share “commitments” outlining their work to advance SDG16+, collecting them on TAP’s newly revamped TAP Network Partner Action Platform. This Partner Action Platform provides an online portal for showcasing the great work of individual organizations around SDG16+, and highlighting opportunities for sharing, learning and collaboration across TAP’s diverse membership. Additionally, the platform serves as an advocacy opportunity by showing to governments the leading role that civil society is taking to advance SDG16+, making the argument that as duty-bearers of the 2030 Agenda, governments need to commit to more ambitious and concrete action towards SDG16+.

Join the TAP Network and the TAP Mobilization and Advocacy Working Group

Leveraging the recently created TAP Advocacy and Mobilization Working Group where interested civil society from across the globe can come together to develop joint international and national advocacy strategies, we will bring together a diverse range of CSOs representing a range of issues and areas. In particular the Working Group will:

1) Provide a platform to ensure that CSO activities on SDG16+ are aligned and complementary;

2) Develop, reflect and refine our approach to encouraging governments to reference the importance of advancing SDG16+ with a focus on increased resourcing and accelerating SDG16+ action; and

3) Curate approaches to ensure robust civil society participation in the SDG Summit. The Working Group will host structured monthly calls where working group members will provide vital intelligence about SDG16+ developments and assess the trajectory of international and national campaign activities. We will further create a dedicated listserv where a broad scope of CSOs can share information and solicit support.

When: Join the Working Group at your earliest opportunity. In addition to hosting monthly coordination calls, you will receive regular updates on the SDG16+ opportunities and entry points via email.
