Transitional justice

Special Procedures mandate holders have been actively involved in both the development and implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. The 2030 Agenda places people at its center and strives to leave no one behind through 17 cross-cutting SDGs.

It recognizes that respect for all human rights, including the right to development, is essential to building a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable world for everyone.

Several mandate holders have advocated for including human rights in the SDGs from their inception. In addition, as requested by several Human Rights Council resolutions or on their own initiative, many mandate holders have used their thematic reports, country visit reports, and other activities to promote and assist States as well as other stakeholders with the implementing the 2030 Agenda using a human rights-based approach.

This document is a compilation of Special Procedures reports addressing SDG 16.
