Contribution to international development report: 2017-2018

First ever Contribution to International Development Report takes a holistic look at a wide cross-section of Scottish Government international development activity, and presents it within the context of the UN Global Goals.


Our thanks to all our partners, within the Scottish Government and externally, who have inputted to this Report and have themselves contributed to development outcomes. Our particular thanks to Saul Shapiro, Scottish Government Intern from the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science, who assisted greatly with the preparation of this Report during his internship with the International Development Team.

"The UN Sustainable 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."
