Goal #10: Reduce inequalities in the world

Goal #10: Reduce inequalities in the world

Few weeks ago we were talking about a goals (Sustainable Development Goals) that 193 UN’s Members had approved in order to reach 3 extraordinary purposes: ending extreme poverty, fight against inequalities and injustice and combat climate change.

Since the beginning of 2016 until December 31, 2030, different economies, companies and citizens of the world will have to follow the itinerary marked by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in order to build a more just, equitable and sustainable world.

A days after, Oxfam Intermon NGO published a report in which talked about inequalities there are in the world. The report called “An economy for the 1%” has the aim of this report is to end with the privileges and the concentration of power to slow the extreme inequality.

Today, we are creating an infographic with the most relevant data we have found about inequalities in the World and in Spain. If you want to read the whole report, you can download it in Oxfam Intermon webpage.

Growing economic inequality harms everybody as it weakens the growth and the social unity. But is the poorest population who suffer their worst consequences.” – Oxfam Intermon

Oxfam Intermon has made this report to demand the governments to work hard for having more redistributive societies and get a social justice. Furthermore, for the future government in Spain, the NGO has asked a new law against tax evasion with more effective steps and with greater control.

Oxfam Intermon also asked social steps that guarantee, among others, a minimum incomes for all homes, increase the minimum salary to 1.000€, reduce the salary gap between women and men and promote recovery of 0,4% of international development aid.

It is time for world leaders in this era of modern capitalism work together on all governments to change the system and make it more inclusive, equitable and sustainable” – Lady Lynn Forester
