Please note: This survey should take you around 10-15 minutes to complete, should you wish to respond to all of the questions. However, inputs are optional to many questions, and you can still submit this form without responding to every question in this survey. 

This survey is intended to collect reflections and insights from any interested stakeholder working to advance SDG16+ on Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies.

This survey is broken up into two parts. The first page of this survey is intended to collect perceptions of progress towards SDG16 at the national and global levels, and should take 2-3 minutes to complete. The second page is intended to collect perceptions on key challenges around SDG16+, along with collecting concrete recommendations from civil society for strengthening SDG16+ implementation going forward, and should take roughly 8-12 minutes to complete. 

The inputs into this survey will feed into:

1) The TAP Network’s “Halfway to 2030 Report on SDG16+”
- This report will provide an in-depth analysis of progress towards SDG16+ to-date, utilizing insights from this survey, as well as the expertise of key civil society partners working around SDG16+. This report will also examine the challenges for implementation, as well as recommendations for improving SDG16+ implementation, and will showcase the leadership role of civil society in advancing SDG16+ at all levels to-date. (Final deadline for inputs: 31 May 2023)

2023 is a critical year for the 2030 agenda, representing the “halfway” point of SDG implementation towards 2030. Additionally, the second-ever SDGs Summit will be hosted in September of 2023, serving as an important opportunity for the international community to recommit to the SDGs, and charting a course for more ambitious and concerted action at all levels. 

As we approach the halfway point to 2030, it is increasingly necessary for civil society to come together to collectively analyze where progress stands on SDG16+, and to identify key areas where further action, commitments and accountability are needed to get the SDGs back on track, and to identify recommendations and areas for action by governments and stakeholders alike.
