Lilianne Ploumen, Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, joined us for the first of ODI's #GlobalChallenges 2016 event series on how to ensure the Sustainable Development Goals leave no one behind.
SDG 1 aims ‘to end poverty in all its forms everywhere’ by 2030. Following its adoption, on 21 October, we organised a day-long event to launch case studies on pro-poor growth, discuss new World Bank poverty numbers and reflect on how data gaps matter.
September marked the end of the Millennium Development Goals and the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We held a debate on the first steps needed to prioritise efforts to move beyond the status quo and launched a new flagship report outlining projections for each of the SDGs.
