Graft, HR violation stand in way of SDG-16 attainment: TIB
Although Bangladesh has enough legal and institutional preparations to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal-16 (SDG-16), it may face challenges and risks in achieving it, Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) observed on Sunday.
The SDG-16 stressed promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, ensuring access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
A new TIB study reveals that corruption, bribery, money-laundering and violation of human rights continue in Bangladesh despite taking various steps to prevent those.
TIB senior programme manager (policy and research) Shahzada M Akram presented the findings of the study titled ‘Sustainable Development Goal 16: Bangladesh’s preparation, reality and challenges in achieving the goal related to corruption prevention and good governance’ at a press conference at TIB office in the capital.
TIB trustee board chairperson Sultana Kamal, its executive director Dr Iftekharuzzaman and TIB advisor (Executive Management) Dr Sumaiya Khair were, among others, present at the press conference.
