About the Event
According to the UN, the global poverty rate increased from 8.3% in 2019 to 9.2% in 2020 due to the pandemic. Moreover, the current inflationary effects of the war may lead to an additional 75 to 95 million people in extreme poverty in 2022. While SDG 1 on eradicating extreme poverty is a crucial goal of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, it may sometimes be less addressed than other objectives.
During this in-person event, we will host a panel discussion covering the following key points:
- The importance of addressing poverty through investments
- The different angles to achieving SDG 1 No Poverty: financial inclusion & entrepreneurship
- Research insights on the magnifying effect of financial inclusion
- The intersection between SDG 1 and other SDGs
Join this interesting conversation with our panel speakers Remo Oswald- Managing Partner and Co-founder at Enabling Qapital; Tina Ruchti - Director at elea Foundation for Ethics in Globalization; and Dr. Julia Meyer - Academic Associate at the University of Zurich.
