This event, hosted by ODI, International Rescue Committee and Richard Curtis, UN SDG Advocate, launches new analysis that highlights the need for urgent, accelerated action on the 2030 Agenda's promise to leave no one behind. Focusing on the challenges facing displaced people and people living in conflict-affected areas, the report makes concrete recommendations about how to ensure people caught in crisis are not left behind as the Sustainable Development Goals progress.

The reception, which brings together civil society, governments and the private sector, also screens the premiere of a new short film by award-winning filmmaker Richard Curtis, exploring the theme of leaving no one behind.
