Parliaments across the world have been making use of modern technology to better carry out their representation, law-making and oversight functions. Information technologies are now an essential tool parliaments use to become more open, accessible, accountable and effective. Trends such as the use of open source data or social media are a game-changer for the relationship between parliaments and the public.
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?
