CEP carrying out a baseline study on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for the British Council

CEP to study the British Council's contribution to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to make recommendations about future programming up to 2030.

The UK Government played an important role, with other actors around the world, in developing and promoting the SDGs and is committed to supporting the achievement of the goals.  The British Council, as the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, has a major part in this effort. CEP has been commissioned to write a baseline study on where and how a selection of the British Council’s programmes and projects are making an active contribution to achieving the SDGs. 

CEP will be undertaking a desk review of twelve programmes and projects, mapping their links to the SDGs and developing three case studies. 

The main objectives of this project are to:

  • map a selection of determined SDG targets and indicators against a selection of current or recent British Council programmes;
  • identify and reflect upon consistent themes, examples of strengths and good practice in delivery and potential gaps;
  • make recommendations for future programming and for incorporating the SDGs into British Council monitoring and evaluation processes.

The project will be delivered between September and November 2016.

CEP’s Paula Orr is managing the project.
