This event marked the launch of Bond’s latest report – The UK’s global contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals. The report builds on Bond’s 2019 SDG report and evaluates the UK’s progress in implementing all 17 of the SDGs, as well as the promise to leave no one behind, and highlights critical gaps the government needs to address if we are to deliver the transformative potential of the SDGs by 2030. The report looks at the impact Covid-19, the ODA cuts and other emerging threats are having on the UK’s ability to deliver the SDGs and leave no one behind. It contains concrete policy recommendations that should be followed to get us back on track to deliver on the SDGs.
