TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD: THE 2030 AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The 2030 Agenda is grounded in human rights principles and includes the crucial principle of “Leaving No One Behind” which aims to ensure the most vulnerable and marginalized in society are reached by the SDGs. Geneva, as a global hub for human rights and humanitarian action, focuses on ensuring that these principles are considered in SDG implementation.

INITIATIVES:

The World Health Organization (WHO) has evaluated the Leave No One Behind principle in relation to health in their Equity work and has developed a number of targeted health strategies that focus vulnerable groups like women, children, ageing people, those with disabilities, and migrants and minorities.

In their report titled “Making the Link”, Plan International has completed a mapping of SDGs to Child’s Rights mechanisms to aid in coherent implementation for countries and other stakeholders.

LINKAGES:

The 2030 Agenda belongs to all people so delivery must consider those furthest behind and strive to reduce inequality (SDG 10).
