GOAL 16: PROMOTE JUST, PEACEFUL AND INCLUSIVE SOCIETIES

According to the UN, "goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals is dedicated to the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the provision of access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels".

The year 2016 is the first year of the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. Press freedom and the right to information have a direct relevance to achieving Goal 16, specifically target 10, as it envisages the protection to the right to access information and journalists' safety.
