In December 1995, the General Assembly proclaimed the First United Nations Decade for the Eradication of Poverty (1997-2006) and sustained that “Eradicating poverty is an ethical, social, political and economic imperative of humankind." This year, a Third United Nations Decade for the Eradication of Poverty (2018–2027) was launched under the theme “Accelerating global actions for a world without poverty". Poverty eradication is also a top priority for the 193 governments that approved the the SDGs. A specific target of the United Nation's SDG #1 is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030.
