10 Reduced inequalities

It’s a sad fact of today’s world, but, even if progress has been made in the past century, people are not all born equal, especially when it comes to income.

Nevertheless, in recent years, the income per capita has risen faster than national average in sixty countries. The United Nations’ tenth sustainable development goal aims to increase the income of the bottom 40% of the population in a sustainable manner and at a rate higher than the national average. Additionally, the UN wants to encourage trade with the least advanced countries and enhance the representation of developing countries in global institutions.

This goal can only be achieved by implementing universal policies that take into account disadvantaged populations. After all, the principle of sustainable development is only valid if we respect its three fundamental pillars: economy, environment and society.
