Leave No One Behind in Indonesia A Data-Driven Study
06 December 2023
In 2015, UN Member States unanimously adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) and its 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The new agenda puts the imperative to ‘leave no one behind’ (LNOB) and ‘reach the furthest behind first’ at its heart, recognizing the need to combat poverty and inequalities. The 2030 Agenda and its LNOB pledge are fundamentally rooted in the long-standing commitments of the Member States to human rights and the principles of equality and non-discrimination.
The UN in Indonesia is building upon the abovementioned prospects to deliver our promises and reach those who are furthest left behind in Indonesia. Therefore, the UN in Indonesia conducted a first of its kind comprehensive study titled "Leave No One Behind in Indonesia: A data-driven study identifying inequalities and discrimination faced by those furthest left behind." This study spotlights various marginalized and vulnerable groups across several development dimensions, showing who are the left behind populations and why.
