Towards Achieving the Environmental Dimension of the SDG in Latin America and the Caribbean - SDG Issue 8: SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
United Nations Environment Programme

The link between SDG 16 and our environment is clear when we understand that natural resources that are managed sustainably, transparently, and based on environmental rights can be the engine for sustainable development as well as a platform for peace and justice. On the contrary, violations of environmental law undermine the possibility to develop sustainably. This is necessary not for
only conflict prevention, but also post-conflict reconstruction and the establishment of peaceful and inclusive societies.
