Beyond, Behind or Along? How European cities make the Leave no one behind principle operational in mission statements, policies and budgets

This report contributes to the evidence base on how European local governments operationalize the Leave No One Behind (LNOB) principle in their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) strategies. This is done considering how 24 local governments have been addressing vulnerable groups between 2015 and 2022. Local policies targeting vulnerable groups, their monitoring and budgeting are assessed against criteria designed referring to up to date LNOB literature developed by practitioners, institutions, and academia.
