The 2018 Development Co-operation Report: Joining Forces to Leave No One Behind unpacks the meaning of the "leave no one behind" pledge with a specific focus on the unique role and added value of development co‑operation and official development assistance (ODA)

PARIS21 contributed to chapter 5 of the report, "Data and diagnostics to leave no one behind".

Data and diagnostics to leave no one behind (chapter 5)

Ensuring progress on the leave no one behind commitment set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires a new approach, one that is based on counting people, and takes into account the factors that contribute to their exclusion. This chapter examines the data challenges posed by the leave no  one behind agenda and considers the potential of new and existing data sources to meet them. It makes the case for increased data disaggregation and assesses the tools available for country diagnostics and improving the targeting of resources to those at risk of being left behind. It highlights data success stories, considers the potential for scaling up new data initiatives, and urges greater investment in data and national statistical systems as prerequisites for meeting and monitoring the pledge to leave no one behind.
