A policy agenda to address the mutually reinforcing dimensions of inequality

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was unanimously adopted by 193 Member States of the United Nations in September 2015, includes strong commitments to reduce various forms of inequality. In addition to Sustainable Development Goal 10, “Reduce inequality within and among countries”, the Agenda includes several targets to reduce specific aspects of inequality. Examples include targets on social protection systems for all (1.3), access by all people to food (2.1), universal health coverage (3.8), completion of primary and secondary education by all girls and boys (4.1), ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls (5.1), and universal access to drinking water (6.1) and modern energy services (7.1).
