SDG 10 Reduced inequalities

Inequality poses a threat to sustained social and economic progress, hampers poverty reduction, and erodes people’s well-being.  To address both within-country and between-country disparities, it’s essential to ensure fair resource distribution, invest in education and skill development, implement social safety nets, combat discrimination, support marginalised groups, and promote international cooperation for equitable trade and financial systems.

Griffith University is aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to tackling global challenges around reduced inequalities. Below are some of our outputs supporting this goal.
