The first goal is about ending poverty. According to the United Nations, this is also the most important goal. No one should live in extreme poverty by 2030. Under the Millennium Development Goals, extreme poverty meant that someone has less than $1.25 a day to spend. The World Bank moved this threshold to $1.90 per day in 2015. In 2012, 12.8 percent of the world's population lived below the $1.90 threshold. This is 896 million people. In 1990, 37 percent of the world's population, or 1.95 billion people, still lived below this line. By 2015, this number is expected to have dropped to 9.5 percent or 702 million people of the world's population.
But goal one involves more than just extreme poverty. For example, it stipulates that all countries must work to improve social security systems. This means, for example, devising policies and programs for an inclusive labor market. In addition, it should not be possible for people to fall into poverty due to unemployment, illness, old age or disability. If this happens, you must be able to fall back on social systems that support you.
Also, all men and women, and especially poor and vulnerable people, should have the right to economic resources such as land, technology and financial services, such as microfinance. But this also includes the right to work Goal one also describes that all countries should ensure that poor people can be less affected by natural disasters, or social and economic crises.
