10. Reduced inequalities

10. Reduced inequalities

The international community has made significant strides towards lifting people out of poverty. The most vulnerable nations – the least developed countries, the landlocked developing countries and the small island developing states – continue to make inroads into poverty reduction.

To reduce inequality, policies should be universal in principle paying attention to the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations.
