Leave No One Behind ​- Harvesting first experiences​

The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) launched a Guidance on LNOB in 2019 to provide support to its staff and partner organisations on how to implement this central pledge of the 2030 Agenda to leave no one behind. Around the same time, it also launched its new Guidance for Engagement with Swiss NGOs​, including a reformed system of program contributions, with the 2030 Agenda ​and LNOB placed at its heart.​​​

The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (17 October) marks a great opportunity for the SDC and its partners to reflect and exchange on the application of this pledge to leave no one behind one year after the adoption of the SDC Guidance. Visit this page for more details»
