star this property answer text <p>The UK Aid Strategy sets out the UK Government’s ambition to be a world leader in implementing the Promise on Leave No One Behind. The promise was launched by the Prime Minister and agreed by other world leaders at the UN General Assembly in September 2015. To deliver our strategy, we will prioritise work that targets the most vulnerable and disadvantaged, the most excluded, those caught in crises, and those most at risk of violence and discrimination. We recognise that achieving our overall goal of leaving no one behind will take time, and require concerted and sustained effort across governments, citizens, civil society and businesses. The UK will work in partnership with others to build and sustain momentum on Leave No One Behind at the High Level Political Forum in July 2016 as well as deliver a global moment each year to review progress and give people that are being left behind, including people with disabilities, a regular chance to have their voices heard.</p> more like this
