Transcript of Goal 1: Eradicate Extreme Hunger and Poverty

Goal 1: Eradicate Extreme Hunger and Poverty
Target 1: Halve between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people whose income is less than $1 a day.

Target 2: Halve between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger
Target 3: Achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all, including women and young children
Globally, the target has been met five years ahead of the target date
About 700 million fewer people lived in extreme poverty conditions in 2010 than in 1990
Between 1990 and 2009 the Asia-Pacific region reduced the proportion of people living on less than $1.25 per day from 50 to 22 per cent


Since 1990, the proportion of undernourished people has decreased from 23.2% to 14.9% in 2012, making the goal attainable by the target date
However, Carribean, Southern Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Oceana are too slow to meet the targets deadline
Poverty trap - the inability of people to consume the necessary foods and nutritions reduces labor productivity and creates the inability of these people to generate income.
This has slowed the progress to meet the deadline immensely
Volatile, uncertain and fragile environment
Recurring food price spikes
Political instability and conflict
Food assistance is sudden and hard to predict

UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF)
UN Development Assistance Plans (UNDAP)

2001- 678 million making less than $1.25 per day
2011- 384 million making less than $1.25 per day
Iceland Gender Gap
2006 - 21.9%
2013 - 12.7%
United States Gender Gap

Where do we stand??
Target 1: Halve between 1990 and 2015, the population of people whose income is less than $1 a day
-Globally, goal was met in 2010.

-Work still needs to be done in Africa, Arab regions, South America, and other impoverished countries
Target 2: Halve between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger
-Globally, this target has the goal in reach, but with specific regions, the target may not be met by the deadline.

- Of the 870 million people suffering, 852 million are living in developing countries
Target 3: Achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all, including women and young children
-The goal has not been met and the tendencies lean toward it not being met as there are moderate to very large deficits to decent work in the world.

-Sub-Saharan Africa, Oceana, and Southern Asia are the areas with the very large deficits.
