The ONE Campaign reacts to the publication of the Sustainable Development Goals

Diane Sheard, UK Director of The ONE Campaign, said: “These new Global Goals are a major landmark in the effort to end extreme poverty by 2030. They set out a global contract for a world where nobody lives in hunger or dies of preventable diseases. Campaigners from every corner of the planet have raised their voices to demand that world leaders sign up to a plan that will leave no one behind.

“When the SDGs are formally adopted in September, there will rightly be fireworks to celebrate. We must do all we can to tell everyone about their significance. But goals alone will not end poverty. The hard work of making this ambition a reality must start in earnest, with national blueprints for delivery that will improve the lives of the poorest people and the poorest countries, particularly women and girls. The monitoring of the goals needs a sharp focus on accountability, backed by investments in data collection and use so that citizens have the information they need to ensure that leaders keep their promises.”
