International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


No Poverty is in many ways the headline SDG. SDG number one. Literally. Poverty underpins so many other issues, it has to be one of the main targets. But over 1.3 billion people are still estimated to be in poverty and covid is likely to have pushed an additional 150 million+ people into this situation as well.

On top of that we have market turmoil, energy insecurity, high inflation and falling real wages in many places. poverty is becoming significant in all countries not just the LICs. That said, vulnerable populations in many parts of Asia, Africa and the SIDSs will suffer even more and enter extreme poverty.

The day of observance exists to educate the public and hopefully to mobilize political will and resources to address this global problem.
