ODS #1

No poverty

As the successor to the Millennium Development Goals, the 2030 Agenda holds poverty eradication as a primary emphasis. “No poverty” begins the 2030 Agenda as a long-time goal and creates a focal point to which the subsequent SDGs can relate due to grand interconnection across the lines of social, economic, and policy implications. This goal has refined the MDG by creating targets that establish a worldwide earnings floor, a social protection system, access to economic resources and necessary technology, and the necessary follow-through of governments to implement appropriate policy to assist their citizens.
