Overcoming inequality is at the center of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is expressed as two standalone Sustainable  Development Goals — SDGs 5 and 10 — aimed  at reducing different manifestations of inequality and an overarching commitment to leave no  one behind in the path towards sustainable development. This rallying call of the 2030 Agenda reflects the recognition that some groups  have not benefited from the economic and social progress that the global society has experienced in recent decades. Moreover, SDG 17 underscores the need to disaggregate and analyse indicators, in order to reveal heterogeneity in progress towards the SDGs that might otherwise be concealed behind national averages
