Goal 1 | No Poverty: Leadership

Goal 1 No PovertyShow LeadershipAs a global citizen how can I show leadership?
  • "Make a donation to a charity that focuses on reducing poverty.
  • Support campaigns collecting items for victims of emergencies. Donate your clothes, food supplies etc. to support those in need.
  • Donate what you don’t use. Local charities will give your gently used clothes, books and furniture a new life.
  • Poverty still persists in every country. Over 8% of the world population lives in extreme poverty. Lend your voice to the fight against extreme poverty.
  • Stay informed. Follow your local news and stay in touch with the Global Goals online or on social media at @TheGlobalGoals.

Definitions: Poverty versus Inequality

Level 2 resourceWhat is poverty?

Poverty is a relative concept used to describe the people in a society that cannot participate in the activities that most people take for granted. The Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) uses the following definitions:

  • "Deprivation: Looking at the essential items people are missing out on.
  • Poverty lines: A level of income, below which people are regarded as living in poverty.
  • Relative poverty: This is when poverty is measured against something that can change. It means that poverty is measured against a standard that is unacceptably low in a given point in time.
  • Absolute poverty: This is when a household or person does not have enough income for even a basic acceptable standard of living, or to meet basic living needs. The threshold for absolute poverty varies between developed and developing countries.
  • Extreme poverty: When people are living on an income below the international poverty line set by the World Bank of $1.90 a day.
  • Poverty gap: The average difference between the poverty line and the disposable income of households living below that poverty line." (ACOSS, n.d.)
What is inequality?
  • Inequality means the unequal distribution within society of income, wealth and goods. The Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) measures inequality in two ways: income inequality and wealth inequality. (ACOSS, n.d.)
