The ‘Leave No One Behind’ Index
Who’s behind it? – Overseas Development Institute
How can it help? – The ‘leave no one behind’ index, developed by ODI, monitors the extent to which the more than 40 governments presenting their Voluntary National Reviews on the SDGs at the 2017 High Level Political Forum are currently equipped to meet the commitment of leaving no one behind. It assesses the readiness of these governments to address the SDGs in terms of: a) availability of data; b) policy; and c) finance.
The index shows that as of 2017, 25 countries from those presenting national reviews are ready to meet ‘leave no one behind’ commitments, and 18 are partially ready to meet their commitments.
