End poverty in all its forms everywhere

For decades poverty eradication has been a global development goal and for many countries a national policy priority. The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the United Nations General Assembly on 25 September 2015 has further raised the level of ambition and increased the scope for monitoring poverty around the world. As stated in the Preamble to the Agenda, “…eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.”
