16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies.

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.

How is it going?

So far, Sierra Leone is not receiving a passing grade for SDG 16 in the SDG Index and Dashboard Global Report.  51% of people on remand in Freetown have not been indicted and the country rates poorly on both the Corruption Perception Index (29 of 100) and Government Efficiency (3.2 of 7).
