The imperative for Leaving No-One Behind and the MECS programme

By Dr Joni Cook


This blog discusses the central importance of the ‘Leave No-One Behind’ (LNOB) agenda to the aims and activities of the MECS programme and the broader clean cooking movement, and introduces a new spotlight blog series. The LNOB blog series aims to share knowledge and insight relating to the LNOB agenda gained from our global activities through the MECS programme. By sharing LNOB-focused insight, we endeavour to facilitate collective prioritisation of the LNOB agenda throughout the wider clean cooking sector and movement, and increase the impact and pace of LNOB progress as a whole.
