Post-Brexit U.K. Must Prioritize SDGs In National, International Development Strategies, Opinion Piece Says

Devex: Opinion: What should a progressive post-Brexit aid agenda look like?
Claire Godfrey, interim director of policy, advocacy, and research at Bond

“…The United Kingdom has earned a stellar reputation for being a driving force for tackling global poverty and promoting sustainable development. But post-Brexit, and following the upcoming general election, we will urgently need a government that not only champions this record, but raises its ambition even further to ensure that future generations live in a world free from poverty, extreme inequality, and environmental degradation. … The next U.K. government must re-orient its national and international development strategy to give us a better chance of reaching the ambitious, but achievable, Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. … Bond and its 400+ members are not alone in this call, almost two-thirds of the British public believe that tackling poverty in developing countries should be ‘a major priority’ for the U.K. government” (11/12).
