The Government is committed to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) internationally and in the UK. The FCDO has oversight of the SDGs, but all government departments have responsibility for aspects of the SDGs that relate to their policy remits. Everyone in the UK has a role to play, including communities, local government, the private sector, and civil society. We welcome decisions by local authorities to undertake voluntary local reviews.
