Reduce inequality within and between statesMore on SDG 10
Global inequalities are very large and one of the biggest obstacles to sustainable development and poverty reduction. In recent years, inequalities within many countries have increased. Inequalities limit the opportunities of social groups to participate in and contribute meaningfully to social, cultural, political and economic life. Therefore, Goal 10 focuses on reducing inequalities within and between states.
Specifically, Goal 10 calls for a sustained increase in income growth for the poorest 40 percent of the population. By 2030, the aim is to further empower all people and promote their social, economic and political inclusion. Equal opportunities should be ensured through the elimination of discriminatory laws, policies and practices. Orderly and safe migration and mobility of people should be facilitated, including through responsible migration policies. Developing countries should be better represented in international economic and financial institutions and have a greater say in decision-making.
