Poverty is more than just a lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. It results in hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, discrimination and social exclusion as well as a lack of participation in decision-making. Economic growth needs to be shared to create sustainable jobs and promote equality.

In 2015, the member countries of the United Nations agreed 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These new goals apply to everyone and so all countries are working between now and 2030 to put an end to all forms of poverty, to combat inequalities and to address climate change, ensuring that no-one is left behind.
