EU Policy Brief No. 3: Governance, peace and security in Burundi, Mali and Uganda. Comparative NSO data for measuring Goal 16 of the SDGs
This EU Policy Brief provides an evidence-based connection between two important international processes regarding governance, peace and security (GPS). The one is the measuring of GPS by national statistics offices (NSOs) in Africa, which is already reporting under the auspices of SHaSA (see box 1). The other is the recent consultations among political and technical stakeholders, supported by the UNDP and latterly the UN Statistics Division, on defining measurable indicators for the ten targets of Goal 16 – on peace, justice, and accountable institutions (see box 2 on p.2) – of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These were due to be considered at a Special General Assembly of the UN in September 2015.
