GOAL 01 – NO POVERTY
The first Sustainable Development Goal highlights the importance of defeating poverty in all its forms, in every corner of the world.
Since poverty has many faces, it is not just about poverty in an economic sense, but it also incorporates the access to adequate social services, the access to quality education, the possibility of being able to access adequate technologies, or knowing how to react and recover from natural disasters.
There are 736 million people in the world living on less than $ 1.90 a day. Looking at the situation in Italy, territorial differences persist: almost half (44.4%) of the individuals residing in the Southern regions are at risk of poverty or social exclusion, while in the Northern regions it is 18.8% of the population that lives in this condition.
