1 No poverty

Imagine living on less than $1.25 a day. Pretty hard, huh?

And yet that’s exactly the challenge many people are having to face in today’s world. The United Nations has made eradicating extreme poverty
by the year 2030 its number one sustainable development goal. It wants to halve the number of people who are living in poverty, whatever form it takes. We often think
of poverty as being a lack of income and resources with which ‘to make a living’, but it can affect populations in many other ways. Malnutrition, limited access to education and various discriminations are all examples of poverty.

So how do we achieve this goal? First off, by creating sustainable jobs and social protection systems that are accessible to all. War and natural disasters so easily lead populations into a spiral of poverty, and these systems would help them overcome such challenges.
