The Bern Data Compact represents a major milestone towards the recognition of community-driven data in official processes, and its role in filling vital information gaps for sustainable development.
Achieving official recognition of citizen-generated data as a crucial tool to ensure no one is left behind in fulfilling each SDG has been a key goal of the Leave No One Behind Partnership since its founding in 2017, but that work didn’t start nor end at the 2021 World Data Forum.

The Leave No One Behind India Coalition’s 100 Hotspots project recently conducted community consultations to understand the impact of COVID-19 on five marginalised groups in India.
The findings underscore the need for the Indian government to urgently prioritize the needs of marginalised communities and to follow policy recommendations identified by the communities themselves, in order to leave no one behind in its implementation of the SDGs.

The Leave No One Behind partnership is growing at both the country and global level. The partnership has launched coalitions in two new countries: Malawi and Denmark. At the global level, the partnership is excited for HelpAge International—a worldwide alliance standing up for the rights of older people— to join as a global member organisation.

A recent report from the Leave No One Behind Consortium in Nepal has uncovered how gender discrimination continues to restrict access to higher education and vocational skills training for girls.
This set of obstacles intersects with poverty and caste discrimination to create a series of traps for many women throughout Nepal.

This is the second story from our new series of articles, focussing on the work of our partners in Bangladesh. The article highlights the situation of ten marginalised groups in the country, including ethnic minorities (indigenous peoples), river gypsies, elderly people involved in begging, people living with HIV/AIDS, people living in hard-to-reach areas (char, haor, hills, islands, forests, etc.), sex-workers, and Dalits.

The report is a collaborative effort of the two networks of the Leave No One Behind Partnership and the Inclusive Data Charter, coming together as the “Civil Society Collaborative on Inclusive COVID-19 Data“. More than 20 CSOs representing and working with diverse marginalised communities engaged in this joint endeavour. The report harnesses the potential of data generated by communities and civil society organisations (CSOs) to create a holistic understanding of how people who have been marginalised have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, their responses and resilience.
