Leave no one behind (LNOB)

The leave no one behind (LNOB) principle is a steadfast principle of the 2030 Agenda with its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and represents the unequivocal commitment of all UN Member States to eradicate poverty in all its forms, end discrimination and exclusion, and reduce the inequalities and vulnerabilities that leave people behind and undermine the potential of individuals and of humanity as a whole.

LNOB has been reflected throughout UN Women’s Strategic Plans, including the current Strategic Plan 2022-2025. Leave no one behind means moving beyond aggregate results towards ensuring meaningful inclusion, participation and progress closing the gaps for all population groups at a disaggregated level.

In line with its intersectional approach, the Strategic Plan includes a focus on addressing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination, including on the basis of age, sex, race, ethnicity, location, disability, migration and displacement, and indigenous, socioeconomic, and other status.

All of UN Women’s country, multi-country and regional offices report annually on key results achieved towards realizing the SDGs and clarify their reach to:

UN Women LNOB results 2018-2021

A number of indicators in  UN Women’s previous Strategic Plan 2018-2021 and corresponding Integrated Results and Resources Framework (IRRF) use disaggregation by basic demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, and geographical location, as part of UN Women’s explicit planning and reporting efforts to leave no one behind. The table below highlights output indicator results for 2021 and their distribution across these characteristics.

Other indicators in UN Women's Strategic Plan 2018-2021 measure results towards the leave no one behind principle, for example, by focusing on maximizing the number of direct beneficiaries in rural areas (e.g. indicator 3.10.2: Number of rural women supported to gain access, use and/or control of productive resources by UN Women).

In the Report of the Under-Secretary-General/Executive Director of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women on progress made on the Strategic Plan 2018–2021, UN Women also reported quantitative results by other characteristics such as disability status, where relevant; and qualitative results from UN Women's country, multi-country and regional offices' work to leave no one behind. In addition, further information was presented in Annex V. Report on the implementation of the quadrennial comprehensive policy review of operational activities for development of the United Nations system.
