The commitment to ‘leave no one behind’ has been a key feature of all the discussions on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is now hardwired into the agreement. The idea that ‘no goal should be met unless it is met for everyone’ is well established in the rhetoric around the new goals.
These three papers set out the first step along the road to implementing this agenda - the step of identifying marginalised communities.
Focusing on two case study countries for each of the three regions, sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the papers identify gaps in achieving a number of outcomes relating to key SDGs targets for marginalised groups.
