Counting Hard-to-Count Populations

The United Nations (U.N.) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has continued recent international momentum in placing inclusion of marginalized populations at the forefront of international development. As laid out by U.N. Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson in his 2016 remarks to the U.N. General Assembly, “the fundamental principles that underpin the new goals are interdependence, universality and solidarity. They should be implemented by all segments of all societies, working together. No one must be left behind. People who are hardest to reach should be given priority.”
