  • The SDG 16 urges us 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. The SDG 16 is of particular importance for the 12 Member States (Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, DR Congo, Kenya, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia) of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) against the backdrop of past recurrent crises as well as ongoing conflicts in Burundi, CAR, South Sudan and eastern DRC. This webinar analyses opportunities and challenges for effective implementation of the SDG 16 in the GLR and hopes to address the following questions: What will be the added value of SDG 16 ten years after the signing of the ICGLR Pact on Security, Stability and Developmentand its ten Protocols? What are the lessons learned from the ICGLR process to ensure successful implementation of SDG 16? Based on ongoing ICGLR initiatives on fighting Youth unemployment and illegal exploitation of natural resources / extractive industries as examples of collaborative regional commitments to address root causes of conflicts, what policy options emerge from the Great Lakes Region?

  • By Angelique Reid, UNDP Elected as traditional leaders, Cizarina Ayuru and Susan Kaino preside over civil cases in traditional court in South Sudan; they are two of the three women serving in the district. “The community felt confident that we would represent them fairly,” explains Cizarina, a widow and mother of three children. “I was the first female traditional leader in Nyang to preside over cases in a traditional court, and I want to be a role model for women and girls in the community,” she says. In South Sudan, local law and order services are scarce and often limited to customary ways of dispute settlement. Traditional courts typically resolve civil matters and petty crimes, commonly including adultery, domestic violence, debts, inheritance, and land disputes.
  • Prepared by Niall Johnston, World Bank Parliamentary Strengthening Programme There has been a tendency to consider disaster responses as something that does not need to be subject to scrutiny. With regard to accountability, greater transparency and better information dissemination are needed for a more effective disaster aid.
  • Senegal has untapped renewable energy potential that could - and should - play a critical role in setting the country on a path towards sustainable development. Today, that potential remains unharnessed. Despite its seemingly endless supply of sun, wind and water, Senegal is still a net energy importer. Its continued reliance on energy imports comes at a high cost. In addition to the price tag, such a policy undermines energy security, fuels pollution, and fails to offer opportunities for those most in need. A lack of electrification continues to cripple the economic prospects of the most vulnerable: while cities are close to 90% electrified, rural areas lag far behind at 25%.
