​​​Lessons Learned Report: Advancing Inclusive SDG Data Partnerships​

Achieving the SDGs requires that progress and lags are being effectively monitored and reported. Monitoring and reporting can pinpoint where meeting the goals is on track, where progress is uneven, and where new approaches are needed. Existing official statistics are not enough to meet these monitoring and reporting needs. To fill the gap, alternative data sources, can complement official statistics to meet the SDG data challenge and ensure that no one is left behind. This joint learning report with Partners for Review (hosted by GIZ), the Danish Institute for Human Rights and the International Civil Society Centre summarises the initial experience and learnings generated by the SDG Data Partnerships initiative, which aims to support an enabling environment for inclusive collaborations. Rea​d mor​e»

An Unequal Pandemic: Insights and Evidence from Communities and Civil Society Organisations

Effective COVID-19 pandemic responses and recoveries require a comprehensive understanding of both the impact of COVID-19 on people who have been marginalised and the strategies used by communities to adapt to and manage these impacts. Data collected by communities and civil society organisations (CSOs) can increase the visibility of people and groups overlooked by official data, improving understanding of their situations and coping strategies. “We must challenge the limitations of data generated and/ or validated by National Statistical Offices if we want data that truly represents the experience of all of society." This collaborative report with the G​PSDD network provides important recommendations that, if implemented, will help place communities at the centre of pandemic response and recovery.​ Rea​d more»​​

Community Leave No One Behind: Handbook for Practitioners​

Community Leave No One Behind (CLNOB) is an empowering approach in which communities are convened and facilitated to conduct their own analysis of who has been left out and to encourage community members to take corrective action. Implementing a CLNOB helps to understand the different LNOB categories and gaps at the grass roots level. This people-centred and gender-sensitive approach provides information on who is left out of development projects.

The CLNOB was designed to ensure a participatory method to enable sustained access to safely managed sanitation facilities for people who have been 'left behind' or left out of the first phase of India's national sanitation campaign. A CLNOB pilot was implemented by the Sanitation Learning Hub in collaboration with UNOPS India. This handbook gives practical insights in the process of a CLNOB including different challenges and how to address them. Read ​more»​​​​​​​
