The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a globally accepted  framework for tracking development progress consisting of 17 goals with  169 associated targets and 232 indicators. The 17 goals cover all interrelated  social, economic and environmental dimensions of development. SDG 16  aims to “promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable  development, provide access to justice for all and build effective,  accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.” The SDG 16 Data Gap Analysis is a systematic review of availability and  suitability of data for SDG 16 indicators in Uganda. It entails a review of  data sources, data producers, data processes, and data gaps. It maps the  23 indicators for SDG 16 versus the data sources and data producers in  Uganda. The resulting report reflects current state of data for measuring  SDG 16, highlights achievements to date, identifies data and methodology  gaps, and suggests practical and indicator and institutional level  recommendations on how to close the data gaps.
