These case studies complement the 2018 Development Co-operation Report: Joining forces
to leave no one behind. Case study contributors share knowledge and lessons on what
it takes to answer the pledge of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to leave
no one behind through national and sub-national policies, strategies and programmes
as well as international development co-operation projects, programmes and partnerships.
The insights, good practices and lessons shared in these case studies were provided
by diverse actors. These include official development co-operation ministries and
agencies from members of the OECD and the Development Assistance Committee, international
organisations, developing country governments, civil society organisations, business,
and research bodies.
The case studies highlight experiences from projects and programmes in leaving no
one behind and reaching the furthest behind. They are organised and presented under
two broad categories:1. Reaching and including people and places;2. The enabling role
of international co-operation: policies, partnerships and data.
The case studies complement the analysis of the Development Co-operation Report 2018: Joining forces to leave no one behind. They are a source of knowledge and lessons on the multiple, mainstreamed and targeted ways that poor, vulnerable and marginalised people can be included in and benefit from sustainable development and on how international co-operation can play to its strength through policies, partnerships and evidence to leave no one behind.
