When Member States of the United Nations approved the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development in 2015, they agreed that the Sustainable Development Goals and Targets
should be met for all nations and peoples and for all segments of society. Governments
and stakeholders negotiating the 2030 Agenda backed the ambition of leaving no one
behind, an ambition increasingly referred to in development policies, international
agendas and civil society advocacy.
How can we transform this ambition into reality? Policy makers, civil society and business are asking for more clarity on how to ensure that no one is left behind in practice. What does it mean for the design and delivery of economic, social and environmental policies? How should development co-operation policies, programming and accountability adapt? What should governments, development partners and the international community do differently to ensure that sustainable development goals benefit everyone and the furthest behind first?
The 2018 Development Co-operation Report: Joining Forces to Leave No One Behind addresses all of these questions and many more. Informed by the latest evidence on what it means to be left behind, it adopts a wide range of perspectives and draws lessons from policies, practices and partnerships that work. The report proposes a holistic and innovative framework to shape and guide development co-operation policies and tools that are fit for the purpose of leaving no one behind.
The full report will be published in November.
PROFILES OF PROVIDERS OF DEVELOPMENT CO-OPERATION
Where do development co-operation providers spend their aid and what do they spend it on? What are the main shifts and trends in development co-operation?
This advance release of the Development Co-operation Report (DCR) 2018 contains the individual profiles of all members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) as well 13 other providers that report to the OECD in a sufficiently granular manner, and private development finance from two foundations. It also includes estimates on development finance for 10 countries that do not currently report to the OECD.
The full DCR 2018 will be released in the Fall and provide detailed analysis and guidance on how providers can keep the promise of leaving no one behind.
