GOAL 10: Reduce Inequalities
Objective: Reduce inequality within and among countries
Why it matters: Income inequality is on the rise, with the richest 10% earning up to 40% of total global income. The poorest 10% earn only between 2% and 7% of total global income. At the current rate of progress, the World Economic Forum says it will take 217 years to close the gender gap in employment opportunities and pay.
