Water, Sanitation and Hygiene A guidance note for leaving no one behind


This Guidance Note explains what Leaving No One Behind (LNOB) means and sets out how UNICEF and its partners can integrate it fully into their WASH programming. It describes ways of identifying who is being left behind, where they are, and ways of engaging with them. It also provides information on how to analyze and address their needs. The guidance comprises three parts: Part I explains the LNOB imperative, providing key definitions. Part II emphasizes the fact that it is people that are at the centre of LNOB, using examples. Part III provides entry points and examples of actions for LNOB for UNICEF WASH programming.

This document has been developed by Dr Kerstin Danert (Rural Water Supply Network and Ask for Water GmbH) with support from Jorge Alvarez-Sala (UNICEF). The work undertaken as part of a Programme Cooperation Agreement between UNICEF and Skat Foundation, funded by UNICEF (thematic funds) and co-funded by SDC- Switzerland.
