The Republic of Austria and the Hashemite Kingdome of Jordan in cooperation with UN-Women, SDG Watch Europe, and the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens are pleased to invite you to the High-Level Political Forum 2022 High-Level Side Event “Linking SDG 16 and SDG 5 in a time of crisis – Women in Peacebuilding and Justice“ on Thursday, 14 July 2022 at 12.30 PM (EDT).
The event will convene a panel of high-level and senior officials from governments, international organizations, and civil society.
Peacebuilding and justice are the foundation for creating sustainable equitable development and a safe and secure environment in countries shaken by conflict. Peaceful, just, and inclusive societies are the basis for achieving all SDGs, and the 2030 Agenda recognizes that sustainable development cannot be realized without peace and security.
This side event seeks to explore in a multifaceted discussion how peacebuilding efforts including the concept of environmental peace building, strengthening the rule of law, equal participation, and stopping violence against women are essential components to the work on linking SDG 16 and SDG 5.
