Last week, a day after the new Sustainable Development Goals, now known as the ‘Global Goals’, were formally adopted at the Global Goals summit in New York, David Cameron took to the stage to call on the world to make sure the new Global Goals leave no one behind. This month, he has the opportunity to show the world how to turn these words into action. Here’s how.
Right now, Justine Greening, Secretary of State for the Department of International Development (DFID), is working with her team on a new position paper that will guide DFID’s work on nutrition for the next 5 years. This month we want you to write to David Cameron, copying in Justine Greening, and ask him to make sure the principle of ‘Leave no-one behind’ is at the heart of the paper.
But this is just the start. In August 2016, world leaders will gather in Rio de Janeiro for a crucial summit on nutrition to pledge new resources to tackle all forms of malnutrition. We want David Cameron to attend the summit and commit new resources in the fight and encourage other donors to come to the table. So join us and in asking David Cameron if he is #ReadyforRio and if he will be attending the summit next year.
