Average Monthly Household Income
Recognizing and eradicating multi-dimensional poverty is at the core for achieving SDGs for the world and the vulnerable communities it pledges to take along. Communities already vulnerable to various socio-cultural factors are also affected by economic vulnerability, in comparison to all national and international standards. Poverty, though, cannot be seen and understood in isolation, independent of other development goals. It affects nearly all the other SDGs and is affected by them as well.

1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Extreme poverty rates have been cut by more than half since 1990. While this is a remarkable achievement, one in five people in developing regions still live on less than $1.90 a day, and there are millions more who make little more than this daily amount, plus many people risk slipping back into poverty.
Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.
