Goal 1: No poverty
The World Bank estimates that Yemen’s economic output has decreased by about 50 per cent since 2015. Reduced oil and gas production have caused national revenues to drop, leaving government unable to provide basic services, such as education, health, water and sanitation. Hyper-inflation has increased the cost of food and fuel by 150 and 200 per cent, respectively; this, coupled with high unemployment rates, have made survival extremely difficult for most Yemenis. More than half of the population live on less than USD 1.90 per day and nearly 80 per cent require humanitarian assistance and protection.
The SDGs are a commitment to “finish what we started” and end poverty in all forms for all people by 2030. This demands giving particular attention to the most vulnerable, increasing access to basic resources and services, and supporting communities as they recover from the effects of conflict and climate-related disasters.
