Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere


In this episode of MDG, Dom examines extreme poverty, defined as the state of living under $1.25 a day –  which for over a billion people is a daily reality.
Though the proportion of people living on an income that size is declining, this level of survival affords mere subsistence, growing only enough food to feed an individual’s family. Families and communities will remain in a chronic state of extreme poverty, living under $1.25 a day, until the cycle is able to be broken, by producing a farming output greater than that needed to survive – enabling the surplus to be sold for income. For most living in chronic extreme poverty, external assistance from the developed world is a pre-requisite to break this cycle.

SDG Goal #1 aims to end extreme poverty in all its forms by 2030.
