Leave No One Behind
SDC Guidance, 2018
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognises “that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development”. In adopting this Agenda, the international community pledged to leave no one behind, to see to it that the goals and targets are met for all nations and peoples and for all segments of society, and to endeavour to reach those first who are furthest behind.
This guidance on leaving no one behind, published by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is a normative document which clarifies the SDC’s position on leaving no one behind in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and provides support to the SDC staff and its partners on how to ensure implementation.
