SD Alliance celebrates Welsh history in the making

The Welsh Assembly passed the ground-breaking Well-being for Future Generations Bill at Plenary last week. The Bill, developed in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, is just a start in making Wales globally and environmentally responsible.

The world has been watching us along this journey and I have no doubt it will be celebrated. said Assembly Member Carl Sargeant in an article for WWF-UK, We should be very proud of what we have achieved, but the work now starts to deliver the Wales we want.

Fought for by the Hub and the SD Alliance, the new sustainable development duty ensures Wales’ public bodies tackle climate change and take into account the economic and social consequences of their actions on communities around the world.

0.7% Aid Bill passes through the House of Lords

Yesterday, Lord Purvis of Tweed successfully passed the International Development Bill through the House of Lords saying “we will be making a worthwhile contribution”.

Campaigners raised banners of thanks outside Parliament while many more tweeted about the “historic moment” under the hashtag #TurnUpSaveLives.

First drafted by the Department for International Development in 2010, the Bill experienced a number of disappointments that led to a five-year battle. Following Royal Assent, all future governments will be required to spend at least 0.7% on concessional loans and grants to support development work and humanitarian aid in low-income countries.
