Leaving No One Behind
The Nordic countries have a long and proud tradition of cooperation, shared visions and inclusive societies.
We often see this on the international development arena.
After the Global Disability Summit in London, July 2018, the Nordic disability organisations see that both governments, agencies and organisations have a unique opportunity of doing more to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs), by putting more emphasis on leaving no one behind (LNOB).
We have therefore made this report, to assess the current policies of our governments on international disability issues. In what way could the Global Disability Summit in London help strengthen the SDGs and LNOB agenda? Have our ministries understood that the SDGs require a new focus on inclusion?
Our hope is that this report will help strengthen the cooperation between civil society organisations and the governments of our respective countries in order to fulfill the ambitious 2030 agenda.
The report is made in cooperation between organizations in the Nordic countries working with disability and international development:
Disabled People’s Organisations Denmark
Disability Partnership Finland
The Atlas Alliance, Norway
