Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere by 2030

1 - No poverty

More than 700 million people still live in extreme poverty and are struggling to fulfil the most basic needs like health, education, and access to water and sanitation. The overwhelming majority of people living on less than $1.90 a day live in Southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa and they account for about 70% of the global total of extremely poor people.

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need.

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to address poverty:
  • Provide agricultural training to improve the quality and productivity of land and boost crop yields, reducing food expenditure and/or generating surplus to sell to market, while reducing slash and burn techniques (Target 1.5)
  • Provide training on alterative income generating activities to improve and diversify income e.g. bee keeping for honey production, production of cash crops such as vanilla, cloves, raffia and cacao, therefore reducing dependence on extractive activities (Target 1.5)
  • Support communities and local businesses to develop routes to market to ensure fair and full payment to ensure sustainable land use is economically attractive to forest destruction (Target 1.5)

Projects that align with SDG 1: No poverty

A number of carbon finance projects support households and communities to develop sustainable economic livelihoods that can help them make the move out of poverty. 

Below are a sample of such projects. If you'd like to find out more about a particular project, follow the link.
