Financing the end of extreme poverty – ODI report

This research presents a new analysis which reveals that at least 400 million people will still be living in extreme poverty by 2030, despite governments pledging to eliminate all extreme poverty (SDG 1.1)

The report makes a series of recommendations for donors to end of extreme poverty by 2030, the first Sustainable Development Goal, including:

  • Focus aid on those countries that are least able to finance their own public spending to end extreme poverty, even after maximising their tax revenues
  • Increase the share of aid provided to the least developed countries from 29% to 50%
  • Increase funding in the poorest countries for the core social sectors of health, education and particularly social protection, and
  • Increase global aid from all OECD DAC donors to 0.7% of GNI
