SDG 1 No poverty
Poverty has many dimensions, stemming from issues like unemployment, social exclusion, and the vulnerability of certain populations to disasters and diseases. The 2030 Agenda aims to eliminate extreme poverty by 2030, which is defined as living on less than $2.15 per day (2017 PPP). While significant progress was made in reducing extreme poverty, the COVID-19 pandemic reversed these achievements, causing nearly 90 million individuals to fall into extreme poverty, marking the first such increase in a generation.
Griffith University is aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to tackling global challenges around SDG 1 No poverty. Below are some of our outputs supporting this goal.
