Stand Up for SDG16+: Accelerating Progress on SDG 16+ is a high-level side event to the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly. In the same spirit of the joint 2018 HLPF launch, this side event will continue to shine a spotlight on SDG 16+ and build momentum to support the achievement of SDG 16+ as an end goal itself and as an enabler for other SDGs. The side event will provide a platform for member states, private sector, civil society, and youth to highlight how they are supporting the achievement of SDG 16+.
This side event to the High-Level Meeting on Peacebuilding and Sustaining Peace will explore the potential for the Sustainable Development Goal targets for peaceful, just and inclusive societies (SDG16+) to provide a meaningful set of guide posts for actors as they seek to seize windows of opportunity to sustain peace.
On September 17, 2014 CIC Director Barnett Rubin spoke on a panel at the Woodrow Wilson Center. The event accompanied the launch of a report which examines the impact of US policy on a nuclear agreement on the Middle East.
