These case studies complement the 2018 Development Co-operation Report: Joining forces to leave no one behind. Case study contributors share knowledge and lessons on what it takes to answer the pledge of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to leave no one behind through national and sub-national policies, strategies and programmes as well as international development co-operation projects, programmes and partnerships. The insights, good practices and lessons shared in these case studies were provided by diverse actors. These include official development co-operation ministries and agencies from members of the OECD and the Development Assistance Committee, international organisations, developing country governments, civil society organisations, business, and research bodies.


The case studies highlight experiences from projects and programmes in leaving no one behind and reaching the furthest behind. They are organised and presented under two broad categories:

1. Reaching and including people and places;

2. The enabling role of international co-operation: policies, partnerships and data.



Strengthening the system for preventing domestic violence and protecting victims in Georgia

In recent years, the Georgian authorities have been active in adapting the country’s legislation around domestic violence to European standards. Greater public awareness of the issue and the implementation of legal provisions means that the number of recorded cases of domestic violence rises year by year - between 2015 and 2017 the number of cases recorded increased by more than 2.5-fold. Data from the Ministry of Internal Affairs show that, in 2015, 901 acts of domestic violence were registered and 810 of them culminated in court proceedings; in 2016, 1 416 acts of domestic violence were registered, with 963 cases reaching court; and in 2017, there were 2 192 acts of domestic violence registered, of which 1 603 cases went to court.
