Event: Building partnerships to leave no one behind

This event is sponsored by the Leave No One Behind Partnership (CIVICUS, Development Initiatives, Project Everyone, with support from the UK Department for International Development)

WHEN: 28 March, 13:30-17:00
WHERE: Church House, Westminster, SW1P 3NZ, London | MAP

The heart of the Sustainable Development Goals is a commitment to ensure that ‘no one is left behind’ and that no goal is considered met unless met for all. That’s because, although we have witnessed huge progress in the fight against poverty and injustice, too many people – the most impoverished, those that are excluded, disadvantaged and at risk of violence and discrimination – still face terrible inequalities when it comes to accessing resources and rights. Over the past year, the Leave No One Behind Partnership has worked to develop a shared approach for implementing the pledge to Leave No One Behind.

Join us to explore our latest findings, as we launch two new flagship reports that complement each other to shine a light on who is being left behind, where, why and what needs to be done. The first report has been produced after extensive consultation in over 30 countries from Bolivia to Rwanda to Fiji, engaging thousands of people. We’ll be joined by speakers from a few of the countries to share their insights and knowledge. The second report from the P20 Initiative focuses on tracking the progress of the people who are in the poorest 20% globally.

The event will include a light lunch from 13:30-14:00, followed by three interactive sessions:

  • Global insights on the groups and communities being left behind
  • Country presentations and recommendations on building grassroots partnerships
  • Discussion on priorities and next steps to ensure the Leave No One Behind pledge is delivered

Speakers will include representatives from the UK Department for International Development (DFID), CIVICUS, Development Initiatives, Project Everyone, as well as national partners from Bangladesh, Rwanda, Colombia and Nigeria. Speaker details and a full agenda to follow. RSVP here.

The first half of the event (14:00-15:30) will be live-streamed via the CIVICUS Facebook page.
