GOAL OF THE MONTH

The Goal of the Month for December is SDG 16!


There can be no sustainable development without peace, and no peace without sustainable development.

 

Conflict, climate-fueled disasters, weak governance, and limited access to justice remain a great threat to sustainable development. But a peaceful and inclusive society is the foundation of sustainable development. There is no long-lasting peace and development without respect for human rights. All of us need to work together to reduce violence, deliver justice, combat corruption, and ensure inclusive participation at all levels.

You can find out more about this SDG at the Goal of the Month Website.

All current telephone landlines have been deactivated.

UNIC staff can also be reached via our individual UN email addresses. We continue teleworking operations (begun in April 2020)
