Description of the lecture

Assessments of the MDGs made it clear that progress reported at national levels by different countries was not shared by all sections of their populations. There were also certain sections of the poor in these countries that were systematically ‘locked out and left behind’.  Their excluded status reflected the intersection of multiple and overlapping inequalities that made them harder to reach compared to others and gave their disadvantaged status an enduring quality, lasting over lifetimes and sometimes over generations. The SDG agenda shows clear signs of lessons learnt. It reflects a more in-depth understanding of some of the goals featured in the MDGs and incorporates a number of new goals that had previously been excluded. Of particular importance is SDG 10 of reducing inequalities of various kinds, summarized in the SDG commitment ‘to leave no one behind’.

This presentation will discuss the phenomenon of intersecting inequalities as it plays out in different regions of the world and examine various efforts to address them.
