What's the Goal?
To end poverty in all its forms everywhere by 2030.
Why This Matters
More than 700 million people still live in extreme poverty and are struggling to fulfill basic needs like health, education, and access to water and sanitation. 70 percent of the global total of extremely poor people live in Southern Asia and Sub-Saran Africa. Poverty has many dimensions, but its causes include unemployment, social exclusion, and high vulnerability of certain populations to disasters, diseases, and other phenomena, which prevent them from being productive.
Did You Know?
167 million children will live in extreme poverty if the world doesn't take action to improve health and education.
