Leaving no one behind

19 May 2016Bond

The commitment to “leave no one behind” is firmly embedded in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

This paper explores how member organisations of the Bond Sustainable Development Goals Group are building this commitment into their work; what the possible implications for programming, policy, funding and resourcing are; and the similarities and differences between the various approaches.

The case studies included illustrate the challenges and opportunities in translating the commitment into tangible actions.

The paper also outlines the 10 principles of “leave no one behind” and makes a series of recommendations to the UK government to guide its implementation of these principles across all its work to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
