Sustainable Development Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities
The United Nations calls its 17 Sustainable Development Goals "the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." With a target of achieving them by 2030, the goals are all interconnected and address the global challenges we face.
Goal 10 is "Reduced Inequalities." As the UN puts it: "To reduce inequalities, policies should be universal in principle, paying attention to the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations."
