The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Sustainable Development Goals concerns itself with the sustainability of international development objectives and, according to the Register of All-Party Parliamentary Groups, looks to 'promote debate in advance of the sustainable development goals at the United Nations and to monitor their implementation in the years that follow.'[1]


The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Sustainable Development Goals was formed after the 2015 UK general election in advance of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Goals which will be held in Paris from November 30 to December 11.

The main objective of this conference is to, for the first time, establish a a binding and universal consensus on climate amongst all member nations, after 20 years of fiercely debate around the issue.

The role of the group therefore is to set up an outpost by which the UK government may judge these climate change measures and sustainable development goals are implemented correctly. [2]


Bond, a network of UK based NGO's working toward further international development and collaboration, act's as the APPGSDG's secretariat.
