Make a brief budget of your financial spending, then review the possibility of living with $ 1.25 a day (people who receive less than this amount are considered in a situation of poverty).
Eradicating poverty is number one of the Sustainable Development Goals because with poverty it is impossible to meet the rest of the goals such as education, zero hunger, access to water, responsible consumption, among others. This is why poverty is recognized as transversal to the social, environmental and economic dimensions of sustainability.
On the other hand, the term poverty must be viewed from a multidimensional perspective, that is, it goes far beyond just economic income but is also related to social aspects that are necessary to live.
According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), it should be considered if an individual is in a situation of poverty:
(1) if income is below a poverty line,
(2) if it has the necessary basic services, and
(3) if they have enough basic capacities to function in society (UNESCO, 2015).
For sustainable development, it is essential that people have the basic resources to satisfy their social, economic and personal needs.
