Brookings Experts Discuss U.N., SDG’s ‘Leave No One Behind’ Commitment

Brookings: Getting specific to leave no one behind
Homi Kharas, interim vice president and director, and John McArthur, senior fellow, both with Global Economy and Development at Brookings, discuss the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the commitment by countries to “leave no one behind (LNOB).” The authors write, “[W]e, together with colleagues at the Japan International Cooperation Agency and other partners, collaborated on a new edited volume, Leave No One Behind: Time for Specifics on the Sustainable Development Goals. We thought it time to showcase ideas that could help shift LNOB from admirable slogan to practical approach.” The authors discuss key points of the book in this post (9/23).
