It's possible to end extreme poverty by 2030 — but only if governments, businesses and philanthropists invest $350 billion extra per year.
Did you know?
- The world must invest an extra $350 billion per year to end extreme poverty, tackle inequality, and halt climate change in the world's poorest countries.
- To achieve this, rich nations must meet the UN target to spend 0.7% of gross national income on international aid, and ensure it reaches the poorest countries.
- Governments of low-income countries need to increase their budgets for areas such as education, health, and nutrition — and changes to tax and trade systems can help achieve this.
Here's we can do
- Demand that big business and billionaires do what they can to end poverty, tackle inequality, and halt climate change.
- Call on rich governments to do what they can to end extreme poverty, such as increasing aid budgets and directing it to the poorest 59 countries.
- Ask leaders in low-income countries to step up their budgets for health, education, and nutrition, so every citizen has an equal chance to fulfill their potential.
