What Does it Mean to Leave No One Behind? A United Nations Development Programme Discussion Paper and Framework for Implementation


This paper suggests a framework that governments and stakeholders can use in their countries to take action to enable and accelerate national progress to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals while leaving no person in their society behind.

It also seeks to inform the manner in which the United Nations Development Programme works with countries to implement the 2030 Agenda, in keeping with the commitment of the United Nations Development System to put the pledge to leave no one behind at the heart of its support.
