Webinar: SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities: Social, Economic and Policy Inclusion of Refugees and Migrants

Goal 10 calls for reducing inequalities in income as well as those based on age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status within a country. The Goal also addresses inequalities among countries, including those related to representation, migration and development assistance.

The income inequality has been on the rise, with the richest 10 percent earning up to 40 percent of total global income. The poorest 10 percent earn only between 2 percent and 7 percent of total global income. In developing countries, inequality has increased by 11 percent if we take into account the growth of population.

 

Income inequality is a global problem that requires global solutions. This involves improving the regulation and monitoring of financial markets and institutions, encouraging development assistance and foreign direct investment to regions where the need is greatest. Facilitating the safe migration and mobility of people is also key to bridging the widening divide.

This webinar provides information about reducing inequalities and it is scheduled for November 8th. Webinar is organized by project partner Kaleidoscope Futures, who is focusing on SDG 10.
