While this is a remarkable achievement, one in five people in developing regions still live on less than $1.90 a day, and there are millions more who make little more than this daily amount, plus many people risk slipping back into poverty.
Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”READ MORE ABOUT DALLAS HEROES WORKING TOWARDS THIS GOAL” google_fonts=”font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][grop_blog blog_style=”blog-grid” blog_column=”grop-blog-col-3″ blog_category=”true” blog_date=”true” blog_comments=”true” blog_order=”DESC” blog_orderby=”date” blog_show_category=”goal-01″ blog_pagination=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
