Open Access Books: Supporting SDG 1

Books addressing SDG 1 published open access (OA) can help drive policies and conversations.
OA publication enables books to be read by anyone, anywhere, with an internet connection.

Below you’ll find OA books related to SDG 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere. These books are having an impact on both the Goal and the discussions around it.

The United Nations estimated that in 2015 more than 700 million people lived in extreme poverty or could not fulfill the most basic needs (health, education, access to water, sanitation). Another 71 million people are estimated to be driven into poverty by the COVID-19 pandemic. On top of that, only 22% of workers are covered by any form of unemployment benefits.
