Introducing the TAP Network Goal 16 Advocacy Toolkit


TAP Network Goal 16 Advocacy Toolkit
A practical guide for stakeholders for national-level advocacy around Peaceful, Just and

  Inclusive Societies

The 2030 Agenda reaffirms the wealth of evidence that “there can be no sustainable development without peace and no peace without sustainable development.” Explicit institutional acceptance of the importance of good governance and peace for the achievement of sustainable development – through the adoption of Goal 16 and references throughout the 2030 Agenda outcome document – was an enormous breakthrough in the 2030 Agenda. Accordingly, peace is specifically identified as one of the five pillars on which the 2030 Agenda is grounded, in recognition of the critical need for governments to ensure that their citizens can live safe, secure and dignified lives. A commitment to human rights, justice, accountability and transparency – all of which are recognized as prerequisites to ensuring an enabling an environment in which people are able to live freely, securely and prosperously – is evident throughout Goal 16 and the 2030 Agenda.
Recognizing the critical importance of Goal 16 of the 2030 Agenda on peaceful, just and inclusive societies and accountable institutions, this Goal 16 Advocacy Toolkit from the Transparency, Accountability & Participation (TAP) Network provides national-level civil society stakeholders with guidance on how to engage with their governments and other local, regional or international stakeholders to support the planning, implementation, follow-up and accountability of Goal 16.
The Goal 16 Advocacy Toolkit includes guidance, tools and tips on:
  • Contextualizing Goal 16
  • Engaging with Goal 16 at the national level
    • Preparing a Goal 16 “Gap Analysis”
    • Undertaking a Stakeholder Mapping and Analysis
    • Developing an Advocacy Plan for Goal 16
    • Crafting compelling advocacy messages around Goal 16
  • Working with national governments to support planning and implementation of Goal 16
  • Supporting national follow-up and monitoring for Goal 16
  • Working with international processes and various other stakeholders
  • Case studies for successful advocacy by civil society organizations on Goal 16 issues
In addition to providing this toolkit for national-level civil society stakeholders, the TAP Network will also host a series of webinars and workshops to support capacity building for national-level advocacy for Goal 16.

[Beyond 2015:346] Sec Gen Synthesis Report – task force, grupo de trabajo, groupe de travail

Dear Beyond 2015, (Español abajo – Francais ci-dessous), 

As you know the UN Secretary General will soon be launching his “synthesis report” and this document may be one of the influential pieces in the post-2015 negotiations.

 Beyond 2015 will be preparing a reaction to this document and we are looking for volunteers to support us in preparing this paper.

There is no official date for the launching of the report yet but we are expecting it to be in the last week of November. Our reaction will need to be ready very quickly so we can also influence Member States in their own analysis of the report.

Volunteers are expected to: 

·         Be ready to read the report (it may only be available in English at the first moment)

·         Be ready to engage and provide inputs quickly and operate with very tight deadlines

·         Commit to provide inputs considering the Campaigns positions (Red Flags, 3 P’s, Reaction to the OWG and VPVC).

·         Engage in the dissemination of the reaction paper.

Please, do let us know by November 14 if you would be interested in engaging in this Task Force.  

Please, send your confirmation to Naiara Costa (ncosta@beyond2015.org).

Thanks and regards,

Beyond 2015 Secretariat
