Participate Proposal for post-2015 targets

A new briefing paper from the Participate Initiative

The Participate Initiative provides high quality evidence on the reality of poverty at ground level, bringing the perspectives of the poorest into the post-2015 debate.  In 2013, the initiative carried out a synthesis of studies conducted by the Participate Participatory Research Group (PRG) in 29 countries. This synthesis, presented in the ‘Work with us’ report, draws out the patterns of change that emerged from people’s accounts of their own experiences of moving in or out of poverty and marginalisation. This briefing Paper summarises the areas of focus that emerged from this work which include: leave no one behind; livelihoods and pro-poor infrastructure development; participation and citizen action; and tackle discriminatory norms.  To gain a deeper insight into this work read Danny Burn’s recent blog “Participate’s proposal for Post-2015 targets that respond to the realities of poor and marginalised people”
