MDG1 – Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger

eradicate-ext-pov1

In the next week I will be writing some posts about Millennium Development Goal 1, which is to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. The targets used to measure progress on this goal are:

 

Target a: Reduce by half the proportion of people living on less than a dollar a day
 
Target b: Achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all, including women and young people
 
Target c: Reduce by half the proportion of people who suffer from hunger

 

I’ll take a look at the objectives and progress for this goal. In connection with this I will highlight some organisations that are doing some great work to help achieve the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger. So lots to look forward to. But for now, I’m going to rest. Take care.
