Launched in 2012, the Participate initiative undertook participatory research to gather high quality evidence on the reality of poverty and marginalisation at ground level.  Comprising a network of 18 participatory research organisations working with poor and marginalised groups in 29 countries, it aimed to bring the perspectives of those left behind into the post-2015 debate. Its work aimed to influence decision-makers in the run up to 2015 and thereby affect the shape of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  More here.Participate is on twitter
