Eradicating extreme poverty for people around the world by 2030 is a pivotal goal of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Between 2015 and 2018, global poverty continued its historical decline, with the poverty rate falling from 10.1 per cent in 2015 to 8.6 per cent in 2018.
Scientists, researchers, and research institutions play an important role in progressing towards SDG 01, by addressing how poverty can be reduced and challenges imposed by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and current conflict can be overcome.
ScienceOpen is happy to collaborate with publishers and scientists that support SDG 01 from all over the world and today we want to highlight research featured in our network which is dedicated to Sustainable Development Goal 01: No Poverty.
