International Day for Eradicating Poverty

SN SDG logo © Springer Nature 2019The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, held annually on 17 October, seeks to acknowledge the struggles and amplify the voices of those living in poverty, recognizing that poor people are at the forefront in the fight against poverty.

In order to help tackle these pressing problems and to help realize the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 1 (SDG1: End Poverty), Springer Nature is joining the cause with this hub update, collecting research across disciplines and imprints. Aimed at researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and anyone else active in working towards this goal. Here we share the latest academic voices on issues creating and perpetuating poverty around the world, as well as how people are affected.

Introducing our new SDG1 volume: No Poverty

The Encyclopedia of the UN Sustainable Development Goals comprehensively addresses each of the 17 SDGs in an integrated way. This volume addresses SDG 1, namely "End poverty in all its forms everywhere" and contains the description of a range of terms, which allows for a better understanding and fosters knowledge about it. One of the volume’s editors, Amanda Lange Salvia introduces the volume in this short video.
