World leaders are setting new global goals to end global poverty in the next 15 years.
But setting goals is not enough if we don’t address the underlying causes of poverty and inequality. The concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few will continue to create an unjust world.
Despite the enormous progress made in the last 15 years, 800 million people still live in extreme poverty and the gap between rich and poor is widening.
But growth is not enough to end poverty if it is not equally shared. That’s why our work across the globe is vital to reducing inequality. Our work ensures ordinary people have access to essential public services like education and health care and stop tax dodging so that everyone feels the benefits not just the few.
