#Whistleblower #SDG16
Legislation is needed to clarify that whistleblowing should be viewed positively, like compliance, rather than negatively, like a form of corporate treachery that eventually unravels in costly, exhausting & embarrassing legal battles

of it's human capital.

As a matter of basic economics, the human factor in the production process is very valuable, such that when it is not properly developed or in short supply, the whole process us affected.
In understanding why nations differ in capabilities and wealth, as to why some nations are rich and some are poor, you may want to look at what importance a given nation attached to its Human Capital. Where you have a well developed human capital, limited resources are put into

Around the world, advances in promoting the rule of law and access to justice are uneven.
#SIC2019 #SDG16 #GlobalGoals Image
In Nigeria, ongoing insecurity & high-profile accountability challenges make attaining the #SDG16 goal to “promote peaceful & inclusive societies for sustainable development,access to justice for all & build effective,accountable & inclusive institutions at all levels” difficult.
Due to the structure of the Nigerian political, social and economic life, the youth who make up over 50% of the population, and have creative and innovative solutions around these issues aren’t utilised in achieving the SDGs. #SIC2019 #GlobalGoals
