Global Financial Integrity (GFI) joined several prominent civil society organizations on June 16, 2014 in signing an open letter to the UN’s Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals urging them to make Goal 16 a priority.
Ineffective governance and institutions hinder sustainable development goals. Furthermore, poor governance and leadership systems are often the root of sustainable development issues. Thus, the groups argue, progress with Goal 16 would reinforce all sustainable development goals.
