Teaching and Learning for SDG1 – No Poverty
SDG 1: OVERVIEW
“Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Poverty has many dimensions, but its causes include unemployment, social exclusion, and high vulnerability of certain populations to disasters, diseases and other phenomena which prevent them from being productive. Growing inequality is detrimental to economic growth and undermines social cohesion, increasing political and social tensions and, in some circumstances, driving instability and conflicts.” *Source: United Nations Sustainable Development Goals / Goal 1 /
