A new website on goal 16 – 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 – is online. The database collects existing data and therefore serves as a kind of progress report on Goal 16, favoring analysis of both official indicators relating to the targets of the goal and also additional ones that might play a role for it. The website was developed by the “Governance Data Alliance” – an international consortium of numerous NGOs – and integrates different sources of information.

A rating system for every goal and different parameters allow comparisons to be made between different countries. The progress of the goals and indicators for each country can also be viewed. The website is thus a particularly interesting tool for stakeholders involved in peace research.
