New guidance note on Leaving No One Behind (LNOB) in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) published by UNICEF 

This Guidance Note explains what Leaving No One Behind (LNOB) means and sets out how UNICEF and its partners can integrate it fully into their WASH programming. It describes ways of identifying who is being left behind, where they are, and ways of engaging with them. It also provides information on how to analyze and address their needs. The guidance comprises three parts: Part I explains the LNOB imperative, providing key definitions. Part II emphasizes the fact that it is people that are at the centre of LNOB, using examples. Part III provides entry points and examples of actions for LNOB for UNICEF WASH programming. Read full guidance note»
