    Abstract This policy brief offers strategies to operationalise the principle of 'leaving no one behind' (LNOB) in climate policies, focusing on developing countries. It is based on key areas of progress identified in the long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies (LTSs) of eight developing countries in Asia and the Pacific. Recommendations: (i) sustain decent work and reinforce labour rights to mitigate disruptions caused by the transition; (ii) combine climate initiatives with social protection measures to maintain an adequate standard of living for all; (iii) promote investments in inclusive climate projects and establish financial inclusion regulations; and (iv) establish a people-centred and gender-sensitive monitoring, reporting, and evaluation process.
