Learning Event: How to implement the pledge to Leave No One Behind in SDC Programmes?​​

The Focal Point LNOB/Poverty and the Swiss Representations in the Horn of Africa (HoA) and Nepal invited all interested SDC staff to a learning event on the operationalisation of Leave No One Behind (LNOB). 

The learning event, which took place on 2 December 2021, was based on the experiences and approaches of Nepal and the HoA. Whilst the HoA had just developed a new cooperation programme and therefore commissioned a detailed analysis on minority inclusion, Nepal could share lessons from several years of implementing the LNOB pledge through a gender and social inclusion approach (GESI). This learning event allowed for SDC staff from around the world to share their experience about the operationalisation of the central pledge of the 2030 Agenda to leave no one behind.


Learn about approaches to define groups left behind and how best to incorporate these groups at programme and project level
