Leave no one behind!

Le groupe de travail de PARTOS (fédération néerlandaise des ONG) sur l'inclusion sociale publie son guide pratique "Leave no one behind". Le groupe espère, grâce à ce guide, inspirer les organisations de développement, les gouvernements et le secteur privé dans leurs réflexions sur l'inclusion des populations ultra pauvres et marginalisées.


Ultra-poor and marginalised people are not very visible in their societies, and are easily overlooked in the design of development policies and programmes. The result is that the people who need it most are not benefitting from economic development programmes. In the new global goals for sustainable development, inclusion of marginalised groups has a prominent place. But what needs to be done to make sure that no one is left behind in economic development? In cooperation with the African Studies Centre, The Partos working group on Social inclusion organised a seminar series on this topic and gathered a lot of good examples and tools to include ultra-poor and marginalised people in economic development. With this practical guide the working group aims to inspire NGO’s, policy makers, national governments, institutional donors and private sector to work on inclusion of ultra-poor and marginalised groups.

The first chapter of this publication will highlight the importance of inclusion of ultra-poor and marginalised groups in economic development and will explore the dynamics of exclusion. Who are the ones that are left behind? Why are they excluded?

The second chapter will present our own good practices and lessons learned about inclusion of marginalised groups in different kind of economic development initiatives.

The third chapter will highlight the lessons that the NGOs have learned about inclusion of marginalized groups in economic development in relation to programme planning,  implementation and evaluation. The basis for these learnings are the personal and organisational experiences of NGOs (PARTOs members) with the inclusion of marginalized groups in economic development, of which some cases are presented in chapter two.
The conclusion will close off with recommendations for inclusive development policies and further research.
