PATHFINDERS GRAND CHALLENGE

Inequality & Exclusion

Rising inequality and exclusion represent a formidable challenge to fulfilling the goals of the 2030 Agenda and delivering on the motto of Leaving No-One Behind.  The Pathfinders’ Grand Challenge on Inequality and Exclusion is a cross-regional alliance of countries, civil society and multilateral partners that are seeking to identify practical and politically viable solutions to meet the targets on equitable and inclusive societies in the Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Pathfinders aims to generate solutions in policy areas such as political participation; spatial inclusion; social protection; technological change and the future of work; fiscal and macroeconomic reform; tackling racial discrimination and highlighting the links between gender equality and generalized equality.
