Leaving No One Behind

Embedding equity in the post-2015 framework through stepping stone targets

September 2014


By 2030, we could live in a world free from extreme poverty, in which all children have equal chances to survive and reach their full potential in life.

For this to happen, mechanisms to ensure that disadvantaged groups are not left behind by progress must be embedded in the post-2015 global development framework.

Stepping stone equity targets are one such mechanism. These would serve as interim benchmarks across all goal areas to ensure that disadvantaged groups are on track to achieve final targets and are catching up with more advantaged groups.

By 2030, no post-2015 target should be considered met unless it is met for all.
