The aim of this primer is to provide a clear-language guide to intersectionality; exploring its key elements and characteristics, how it is distinct from other approaches to equity, and how it can be applied in research, policy, practice and teaching.

This paper suggests a framework that governments and stakeholders can use in their countries to take action to leave no one behind in a way that enables and accelerates national progress to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It also seeks to inform the manner in which the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works with countries to implement the 2030 Agenda, in keeping with the commitment of the United Nations Development System to put the pledge to leave no one behind at the heart of its support.
