Towards Sustainable Development that Leaves No One Behind

"Even in extreme poverty, a person has ideas. If these ideas aren't recognized, people fall even deeper into poverty" (participant in the Ouagadougou MDG seminar). To understand the successes and failures of the current MDG agenda, it is essential to think together with people living in extreme poverty. This is both a matter of efficiency and a moral duty, since participation in public affairs is a fundamental human right.
