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. During the just launched upscaling-phase three projects in India, Nigeria and Serbia will be supported with an upscaling grant.
The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has commissioned GIZ to implement the Global Project on Reducing Inequalities. The overall goal is to make a contribution to support the development of cross-sectoral approaches to reduce inequalities at national and international level.
With “Leave No One Behind – Guidelines for Project Planners and Practitioners”, GIZ contributes to the filling of important knowledge gaps on the implementation of the LNOB principle in international development cooperation. The guidelines include concrete entry points for LNOB integration into development work and address both planners and practitioners. Valuable experiences from eleven projects in four world regions shed light on the challenges and opportunities of LNOB implementation.
An interactive and lively learning experience awaits you! Exchange with fellow practitioners, a moderated online forum and assignments to apply LNOB directly in your working context. International experts will provide input through weekly webinars, answer your questions and share relevant material.

GIZ, UN Volunteers and the HDR Office have launchend the Human Development Report 2019 in Bonn. This year’s report deals with inequalities in the 21st Century and how they weaken social cohesion and economic growth, and damage people’s trust in government, institutions and in each other.
The Training Course on Inequality was going into a second round: Interactive, inclusive and action-oriented designing of policies to tackle inequality. The course combined traditional lectures, knowledge-sharing sessions and open discussions with a regional focus on Sub-Saharan Africa.
