Through the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, governments around the world have committed themselves to a global partnership to fight poverty.

However, poverty can only be eradicated once marginalised individuals and groups experience equality, regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, disabilities or age. That is why the term social inclusion is frequently used today in discussions on sustainable development and reversing poverty.

But what exactly does social inclusion refer to and how can development organisations and government agencies contribute to inclusive transformation processes that will improve circumstances for all people to take part in society? Such transformation processes are important for ensuring that marginalised individuals and groups can influence decisions affecting their lives and that they can enjoy equal access to markets, social services and various political, social and physical spaces. These changes may in turn increase people's security over their livelihoods.
