SDG#1: Poverty Eradication

Eradicating all forms of poverty is one of the greatest challenges faced by the United Nations and the global community. The UN Secretary General highlighted that tackling challenges relating to poverty is essential in creating a world of equality. “Let us remember that ending poverty is not a matter of charity but a question of justice,” the UN Chief stated in his address on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. He cited that 700 million people still do not have their basic needs met. Eradicating poverty is Goal 1 of the Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals. The UN Chief stressed the importance of ending poverty as he ended his address with this statement -“Let us commit to uphold the core pledge of the 2030 Agenda to leave no one behind.”

WHO Reports About Climate Change

The World Health Organization (WHO) assessed that up to a million of lives could be saved if the climate change goals in the 2015 Paris Agreement are achieved by 2050. The report indicates the lives spared will be mostly due to improved health, especially in countries with a high level of global emissions such as china and India. 7 million people die every year due to exposure to air pollution. A move to a low-carbon energy in some instances, according to WHO, will also lead to healthier lifestyles, for example, cycling instead of driving, and that is likely to prevent diabetes and heart diseases. Dr. Maria Neira, Director of Public Health, Environmental and Social Determinants of Health for WHO explains, “The true cost of climate change is felt in our hospitals and in our lungs...When health is taken into account, climate change mitigation is an opportunity, not a cost.”The report further adds that the benefits of living healthier will be twice as high as the economic cost of fighting global warming and air pollution.
