This 65th edition of the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation’s Development Dialogue Volume ‘Intersectionality: Experiences, views and visions for change’ aims to create a better understanding of intersectional approaches and methods in policy and practice. Everyone should be seen, recognised, and included in the design and implementation of policies and programmes. The contributions broadly cover four themes.

The first, intersectional data, looks at comprehensive, disaggregated and accurate data use by practitioners to develop appropriate, evidence-based responses and policies to make populations more visible. Theme two examines the role of multilateral institutions and innovative development approaches in programmatic work through crossmandate cooperation among entities including different UN agencies, funds and programmes. The third, financing mechanisms, reflects on flexible and creative ways to design and implement interventions and financing arrangements by various stakeholder groups to bring about transformative change.
