Las Tunisia. – Every October 17 International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, with the challenge of achieving the first goal of the Sustainable Development Goals, which is to “eradicate poverty in all its forms worldwide”.
Achieving this goal is one of the biggest challenges the world faces today, especially in Africa and developing countries.
Poverty is not just an economic issue. It is a phenomenon that includes a lack of basic capabilities to live in dignity, such as access to drinking water, electricity, sanitation and food.
The African continent has the highest poverty rate in the world at 13 percent, and most of that land is in a state of precariousness and extreme poverty.
In Latin America, extreme poverty could reach its highest level in 20 years due, among other factors, to the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Sustainable Development Goals constitute a bold commitment to ending this problem in all its forms and dimensions by 2030. This requires targeting the most vulnerable, increasing access to basic resources and services, and supporting communities affected by conflict and natural disasters.
The eradication of poverty in all its forms remains one of the major challenges facing humanity, and it is a dream that can be realized.
