Claire Godfrey, Head of Policy and Campaigns for Bond, the UK network for NGOs said: 

“It’s a travesty that in 2019 so many world leaders are turning their backs on the people stuck at the bottom, leaving them without a way to even escape poverty. Thankfully, the UK isn’t one of those countries, but today’s message is clear – poverty, inequality, climate change and injustice are all set to increase globally unless other political leaders step up to the plate and deliver poverty focused official development assistance.”
