Donor Policies on Inclusion

Author: Dylan O'Driscoll

This rapid review synthesises the literature from government documents of G7 countries on inclusion in development since the launch of the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. Documents were found using the following search terms in Google: ‘inclusion and development’, ‘gender and development’, ‘LGBT and development’, and ‘disability and development’. Documents were also collected from the country pages on the UN Sustainable Development Goals Knowledge Platform, as well as from the individual countries’ development organisations’ websites. Documents for summary in this report were then chosen based on their relevance to inclusion. It is important to note that as only English language documents were used in this report, a full picture of the positions of France, Germany, Italy, and Japan cannot be given.
