The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. By integrating all three dimensions of sustainability – social, economic and environmental – it sets a new standard in development and shared responsibility, one that commits to ‘leave no one behind’ (LNOB).
For decades, poverty reduction has been at the heart of development work. Inequality and LNOB are relatively new, and therefore requires us to formulate and generate appropriate strategies.
This website presents the most important aspects relating to poverty, inequality and LNOB, and includes the latest reports and most relevant publications. It also provides examples of recent development work where tangible project results are used to show the interrelations between all three topics.
Our first Professional Online Training Course on Inequalities successfully ended on 19 November 2020. It welcomed participants from 10 different countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to effectively discuss how reducing inequalities creates ground for integrated policy-making that combines the economic, social and environmental dimensions at all levels.
The piloting-phase of the Inequality Challenge Innovation Fund ended with results that exceeded any expectations. Ten projects in ten countries contributed to reducing inequality and to advancing the Agenda 2030 principle to Leave No One Behind – find more information about individual experiences here.
