Development Goals offer a vision of the world that I believe people
in Scotland share. From ending poverty and hunger; securing
education and health services; combating inequality and achieving
gender equality, the aims set out by the
UN form an agenda for
tackling some of the world's greatest problems."
First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, July 2015
"This is Scotland standing up for what matters at a time when
it couldn't matter more. Because the reality is - and the evidence
shows - a more equal, more diverse society makes for a more
productive, happier society."
