UN Sustainable Development Goal 10

Reduce inequality

GOAL 10 - REDUCE INEQUALITY

The economies of developing countries are mainly growing at a very fast rate, with average annual growth rates of 3.1% in 2014, compared to 1.4% for developed countries. However, the fruits of this growth are not evenly distributed, with living standards often improving rapidly in urban areas whilst rural areas are left behind. Inequality is also stark on a global scale, with the richest 10% of the global population earning approximately 40% of global income, whilst the poorest 10% of the population earns approximately 2% of global income.

SDG 10 is aiming to promote and sustain income growth for the bottom 40 per cent of the global population at a rate exceeding national averages. Achieving this requires facilitating access to capital and high-quality jobs. Read more about the SDG 10.
