The SDG 16 conference was organized by IDLO and UNDESA with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and took place from 27-29 May, 2019, in Rome

The Conference took stock of global progress towards achieving SDG 16; shared knowledge, success stories and good practices; identified particular areas of concern and main challenges; and suggested ways forward in terms of policies, partnerships and coordinated actions at all levels, as well as specific ways to leverage the interlinkages between SDG 16 and the other Goals.

While sharpening the focus on SDG 16, the Conference further emphasized the integrated, indivisible, and universal nature of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These messages helped inform the upcoming HLPF, assisted in planning its sessions, and serveed to influence collaboration and programmes of work going forward from 2019.
