« back to LNOB events
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.
The SDC invites two of its partner organisations to this online event, Fastenopfer and Kooperationsgemeinschaft (KoGe), to share their experiences on LNOB. Fastenopfer will provide an insight into their Solidarity Groups approach that focuses on building strong and cohesive societies by providing community-based safety nets to the most vulnerable. The recently created umbrella organisation Kooperationsgemeinschaft (KoGe), will present its approach of developing a results framework that incorporates the concept of leaving no one behind into its programming. Both presentations will be followed by a Q&A session to allow for a learning-oriented discussion and reflection on the experiences made and the way forward.
This event is addressed to staff from the SDC head office and field offices, Swiss NGOs receiving SDC programme contributions and everyone interested to learn about LNOB. The session will be held in English. It will be moderated by Stephanie Guha and Antonia Does.
