Goal 1 : No Poverty

Why does this goal matter?

Poverty manifests itself in various facets of the economy and our society. It is one of the key issues that stems from and leads to unemployment, social exclusion and vulnerability; all of which prevent individuals from being active and productive. Inequalities impact economic growth, weaken social cohesion, increase social and political tensions, and cause instability.

What are this goal’s targets?

ERADICATE EXTREME POVERTY

By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day

REDUCE POVERTY BY AT LEAST 50%

By 2030, reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national definitions

IMPLEMENT SOCIAL PROTECTION SYSTEMS

Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable

EQUAL RIGHTS TO OWNERSHIP, BASIC SERVICES, TECHNOLOGY AND ECONOMIC RESOURCES

By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance

BUILD RESILIENCE TO ENVIRONMENTAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DISASTERS

By 2030, build the resilience of the poor and those in vulnerable situations and reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters

MOBILIZE RESOURCES TO IMPLEMENT POLICIES TO END POVERTY

Ensure significant mobilisation of resources from a variety of sources, including through enhanced development cooperation, in order to provide adequate and predictable means for developing countries, in particular least developed countries, to implement programmes and policies to end poverty in all its dimensions

ERADICATE EXTREME POVERTY

Create sound policy frameworks at the national, regional and international levels, based on pro-poor and gender-sensitive development strategies, to support accelerated investment in poverty eradication actions
