As a public institution with the mandate to provide a universal service to all citizens, the Post is a crucial partner in helping governments worldwide meet targets under Sustainable Development Goal 16 on Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
In many countries, the Post works with the government to meet targets on responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making by facilitating democratic processes such as postal voting. The Post also delivers government services related to identity, ensuring that all citizens have the tools they need to access essential services.
Security is another critical target that the UPU is helping facilitate through the postal network. Working with international partners through its Postal Security Group, the UPU helps facilitate the development and implementation of security standards and best practices to help reduce crime and eliminate dangerous goods in the global supply chain.
