Sustainable Development Goal: #1 End Poverty!

Ending poverty is the first among the United Nations' (UN) sustainable development goals. This goal aims to eradicate extreme poverty for everyone by 2030. The UN is committed to supporting developing countries in achieving this goal through various policies and programs.

Sürdürülebilir Kalkınma Amaçlarından "Açlığa Son" Amacının Temsili Görseli

1.1. The target is to eradicate extreme poverty, measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day, for everyone, everywhere by 2030. It aims to determine the proportion of the population below the international poverty line based on gender, age, status, and urban-rural divide.

1.2. The target is to reduce by at least half the proportion of men, women, and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions, according to national definitions by 2030. It aims to reduce the proportion of the population below the national poverty line based on gender and age.

1.3. The target is to implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable. It aims to determine the proportion of the population that is covered by social protection systems/floors, disaggregated by children, unemployed, elderly, disabled, pregnant women, newborns, victims of work-related injuries, and the poor and vulnerable.

1.4. The target is to ensure that all men and women, in particular, the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership, and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology, and financial services, including microfinance. It aims to determine the proportion of the population living in households with access to basic services and the awareness of secure rights to land, measured by gender and forms of savings.

1.5. The target is to build the resilience of the poor and those in vulnerable situations and reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social, and environmental shocks and disasters. It aims to determine the number of people affected, displaced, and killed per 100,000 by disasters, the direct economic loss in relation to global GDP caused by disasters, and the proportion of countries with national and local disaster risk reduction strategies.

1.a. The target is to ensure significant mobilization of resources from a variety of sources, including through enhanced development cooperation, to provide adequate and predictable means for developing countries, in particular least developed countries, to implement programs and policies to end poverty in all its dimensions. It aims to determine the proportion of total government spending on essential services (education, health, and social protection) and the proportion of government expenditure directly allocated to poverty reduction programs.

1.b. The target is to create sound policy frameworks, at national, regional, and international levels, based on pro-poor and gender-sensitive development strategies
