WOIMA aligning with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
Goal 16: Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies
Peaceful, just and inclusive societies are necessary to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). People everywhere need to be free of fear from all forms of violence and feel safe as they go about their lives whatever their ethnicity, faith or sexual orientation. In order to advance the SDGs, we need effective and inclusive public institutions that can deliver quality education and healthcare, fair economic policies and inclusive environmental protection
To achieve peace, justice and inclusion, it is important that governments, civil society and communities work together to implement lasting solutions to reduce violence, deliver justice, combat corruption and ensure inclusive participation at all times.
Freedom to express views, in private and in public, must be guaranteed. People must be able to contribute to decisions that affect their lives. Laws and policies must be applied without any form of discrimination. Disputes need to be resolved through functioning political and justice systems.
National and local institutions must be accountable and need to be in place to deliver basic services to families and communities equitably and without the need for bribes.
- Among the institutions most affected by corruption are the judiciary and police
- Corruption, bribery, theft and tax evasion cost US $1.26 trillion for developing countries per year
- The rate of children leaving primary school in conflict affected countries reached 50% in 2011, which accounts to 28.5 million children, showing the impact of unstable societies on one of the major goals of the post 2015 agenda: education.
- The rule of law and development have a significant interrelation and are mutually reinforcing, making it essential for sustainable development at the national and international level
