Concern predominantly works towards achieving SDG1 and SDG2: No Poverty, and Zero Hunger. SDG2 is particularly critical as it underpins many of the other goals. There won’t be much improvement in people’s health or school performance without ensuring they have enough nutritious food to eat.
SDG1 aims to eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, as well as build the resilience of vulnerable people and reduce their exposure to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters. This is very much in line with our goals as an organisation which is to end extreme poverty, whatever it takes.
We also do lots of work in health and nutrition as our goal of ending extreme poverty can only be achieved by tackling poverty’s root causes – and top among them are poor public health and nutritional deficiencies.
