SDG 10 - Reduced Inequalities

SDG 10 - Reduced Inequalities

Reduce inequality within and among countries

Pacific SIDS require special assistance to guarantee a share in the benefits of sustainable development. Their role in international organisations, with respect to membership and voting rights, is one element in this process.

Goal 10 also seeks to measure inequality within countries, by looking at the change in per capita income or consumption of the poorest four-tenths of the population relative to the national average.
