PTF signs onto the Rome Civil Society Declaration on SDG16+

As a partner of the Transparency, Accountability & Participation Network (TAP) Network, PTF has signed onto the “Rome Civil Society Declaration on SDG16+“, which outlines key recommendations and a broad call to action around SDG16+. It will directly feed into the outcomes of the Rome SDG16 Conference, and will be the central focus of advocacy to encourage accelerated action on SDG16 at the 2019 HLPF in July and the SDGs Summit in September.

The Rome Civil Society Declaration on SDG16+ is the product of an online consultation promoted amongst the TAP Membership and other civil society networks, as well as deliberations during the Rome Conference Civil Society Day that the TAP Network hosted. The extensive process to draft this resolution was guided by three co-facilitators, including Coco Lammers from Namati, Peter van Sluijs from the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding, and Pascal Richard from the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict.
