Beyond the averages: Who is being left behind?

The commitment to “leave no one behind" is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda. It refers to the promise that, in implementing the Agenda, world leaders would endeavour to deliver a more just and equitable world for everyone, with the needs of the most disadvantaged addressed as a matter of priority. From a gender perspective, translating the 2030 Agenda into action will require ensuring that all women and girls enjoy equal rights and opportunities regardless of where they live and their age, class, ability, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, migration or other status.
