The UK, like many other countries around the world, committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. These interrelated goals are understood as crucial to ending poverty as well as tackling climate change and protecting the natural environment. In addition to the commitments to the SDGs over the decades successive UK Governments have also committed to respecting, protecting and fulfilling human rights as included in a number of legal instruments notably for our analysis this includes the International Covenant of Economic Social and Cultural Rights. However as we shall show, these obligations and commitments are not being taken seriously by the UK Government and this is causing significant issues for millions of people both in the UK and in other countries.
