Embracing Practices of Inclusion



A contribution to making inclusion happen in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

 

As part of the transformative shift from the Millennium Development goals to the Sustainable Development Goals, the High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons in their report on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, 2015, uses the phrase “Leave No-one Behind” as their slogan. The panel specifically urges that “The new agenda must tackle the causes of poverty, exclusion and inequality.” Those of us working in development urgently need to understand what will enable those who have been excluded from mainstream development to be included.

 

This book of case studies and grounded theory was written by community leaders, local authority staff and NGO practitioners from five countries, all involved in the Transition in the East Alliance programme, over five years. It contains significant experiences and lessons about the practice of inclusive development for a wide range of excluded or marginalised groups, useful for policy-makers, programme designers, local authorities, development practitioners and community leaders alike.
