International Development Committee

UK progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) inquiry

Inquiry status: open - accepting written submissions

Accepting written submissions - deadline is Friday 18 January 2019. 

Scope of the inquiry

The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs or ‘Global Goals’) were adopted by 193 UN Member States, including the UK, in September 2015. The successor to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), their adoption marked a commitment by all signatory nations to achieve a transformational development agenda by 2030.

In July 2019 the UK Government (HMG) will present its Voluntary National Review to the UN, detailing the progress it has made towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) since their adoption in September 2015. In advance of this, the International Development Committee is launching an inquiry to explore how far the Department for International Development (DFID) and HMG have advanced the agenda overseas since the publication of the predecessor Committee’s 2016 report on ‘UK implementation of the SDGs’.
