The moral urgency of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lies in four fundamental words–LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND. While Bangladesh has commendable progress on many fronts, the twin problems of marginalization and exclusion continue to haunt a wide range of ethnic minorities, particularly from the plains land and other excluded groups. Society for Environment and Human Development (SEHD) in partnership with Power and Participation Research Centre (PPRC), Christian Commission for Development in Bangladesh (CCDB) and Gram Bikash Kendra (GBK) and with support from the European Union and ICCO Cooperation have launched a multi-year initiative to define the excluded groups, map their current status, and strengthen their capacity and partnerships.

A national workshop to share initial findings and facilitate a national conversation on key issues has been arranged for Monday, 22 August, 2016 at 10 a.m. at the LGED Auditorium, Agargaon. Dr. Gowher Rizvi, International Affairs Advisor to Honourable Prime Minister will be present as the Chief Guest. Professor Wahiduddin Mahmud, Ms. Hameeda Hossain, Md. Abdul Karim, Harishankar Jaladas Rambhajan Kairi and Dr. Dipankar Roy will be present as Special Guests and Distinguished Speakers. Representatives of excluded communities from across Bangladesh, national policy makers, civil society, academia, media and others will participate. You are cordially invited.
