The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address global challenges including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. Adopted in 2015, how are the ambitions of goal 16 on peace, justice and strong institutions going? Globally, is the world on track to meet the ambitions? Are there measurement challenges? Are there data availability challenges? This paper provides an outline of progress, especially data progress, with Sustainable Development Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions in the Asia and the Pacific region. A region where two thirds of the world’s population reside. The paper shares progress with measuring the methodologically challenging area of peace, justice and strong institutions, and measurement opportunities on the horizon.
