Online Training: Leave no one behind

Online Training: Leave no one behind!

Why this online training?

Leave no one behind (LNOB) is a key principle of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Its implementation comes with new challenges and often remains unclear to development practitioners. How do we make sure that we include the poorest and most disadvantaged in our projects? What are best practices, challenges and hands-on experiences in applying the LNOB principle? The online training will try to answer these questions by facilitating exchange and providing inputs to better operationalize LNOB in practice.

Who is it for?

The training is explicitly developed for a diverse target group: development practitioners representing bilateral and multilateral donor institutions as well as NGOs or national and local partner institutions are invited to participate. The course format benefits from participants with diverse institutional backgrounds working at different levels all over the world.

What to expect?

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. Experts will provide input through weekly online sessions, answer your questions and share relevant resources. The training consists of a series of modules tackling topics relevant in the context of development projects: the concept of LNOB, challenges and entry points, LNOB in the planning phase / during the implementation process / its inclusion within the monitoring & evaluation system, LNOB advocacy as well as LNOB action planning. Useful tools and instruments complement the training resources.

Crucial part, however, is your involvement. The course will strongly focus on peer learning, sharing and exchanging of experiences from the working context and bringing in individual expertise and resources. A facilitation team will accompany you throughout the whole learning experience.

When and how long?

The training offers 5 modules in the form of online sessions and self-learning activities, the total course duration is 6 weeks. We recommend investing approximately 4 hours per week for learning (2 hours for participation in the live online sessions and 2 hours for self-learning and assignments).

The course is foreseen to be conducted every year and may be held both in English and French.

The next training will take place in French from 05 October to 08 November 2022. If you are interested in participating, please visit learning-giz or contact  

The training  will be conducted on behalf of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
