On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by UN member states in September 2015 — officially came into effect. They provide an overarching, comprehensive and integrated framework for global action on a vast range of critical issues for the next 15 years.

This interactive visualisation focuses on measurement of Sustainable Development Goal 16 - Peace, justice and strong institutions. The full objective of this goal is to ‘promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels’.
