Poverty, like slavery and apartheid, is man-made, and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings
NEW DELHI :
I have been extremely privileged to spend the past week in New York City listening to prime ministers, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, leading philanthropists, activists and leaders from non-profits all putting their differences aside for the common purpose of solving the world’s most pressing, intractable problems at the UN Sustainable Development Summit. From eradicating extreme poverty to reducing maternal mortality, 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) have been adopted by the UN; the target is 2030. This multi-stakeholder commitment will influence all our lives and make the world a more humane and habitable place for generations to come.
