Bringing together Member States, civil society and private sector, the Global Alliance for Reporting Progress on Promoting Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies aims to harness the strengths and resources of its members to support effective and meaningful reporting on the achievement of SDG16 and related targets, taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development, and respecting national policies and priorities.
After a series of partners’ meetings starting in May 2016, the inaugural Steering Committee of the Global Alliance consists of Cabo Verde, Mexico, Norway, Qatar, Sierra Leone, and Tunisia, together with representatives of the private sector – Deloitte, LexisNexis, and White&Case – and civil society – NYU Center on International Cooperation, the Transparency Accountability and Participation Network and the World Federation of United Nations Associations.
The Global Alliance was launched at a High-Level event in the margins of the UN General Assembly on 22 September 2016. The Global Alliance is working closely with other linked initiatives, including the “Pathfinders Initiative for Peaceful, Just, and Inclusive Societies” facilitated by the NYU Centre for International Cooperation, and the ‘16+ Forum’ facilitated by the World Federation of United Nations Associations.
Following the launch event on 22 September, the Team in the Governance & Peacebuilding Cluster leading on the Global Alliance and providing Secretariat functions in support of the Steering Committee is taking forward next steps in development of the Alliance, including support to the functioning of the Steering Committee generally, organization of international and regional events, development of knowledge products and provision of country support which is resulting in the development of ground-breaking new approaches to enable evidence-based policy and action on SDG 16, drawing on the resources of its growing partnerships. Ahead of HLPF 2019—at which SDG 16 is formally under review—there has been an acceleration of activity and demand for Global Alliance services. Dedicated consultancy support is required to assist with this increased workload in the period leading to the next High-Level Political Forums of the 2030 Agenda in July and September 2019.
