Voluntary Supplemental Indicators for Goal 16 on inclusive, just and peaceful societies

Answering the specific call for such efforts set out in the Agenda 2030 Declaration, this voluntary supplemental indicator framework develops a set of SDG 16 indicators to better measure critical aspects of peaceful, just, and inclusive societies. It draws on a range of international normative frameworks to inform the supplementary indicator framework, but puts special emphasis on the Community of Democracies’ Warsaw Declaration. SDG 16 will affect progress towards the other SDGs, and a supplemental indicator set for SDG 16 will therefore also supplement the other SDG indicators. In deciding between indicators, we rely on the following criteria: relevance, simplicity, feasibility and policy actionability.
