Call for Evidence

Extreme poverty and the Sustainable Development Goals - written evidence

The International Development Committee, which scrutinises the development work of the UK government, is starting an inquiry into Extreme Poverty and the Sustainable Development Goals. The inquiry will look specifically at how the development work of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) impacts on United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 1, Target 1.1. This goal calls for the eradication of extreme poverty by 2030, where ‘extreme poverty’ is defined as earning less than $1.90 per day.

The Committee is inviting written evidence by Friday 18 February 2022
