In 1990, according to the World Bank, 2 billion people were living in extreme poverty. Years of unified action on a global scale saw that number reduced to less than 650 million by 2019, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, for the first time in a generation, extreme poverty is on the rise, threatening to undermine decades of progress.
This year's Global Citizen Festival campaign is laser-focused on urging governments to take action and address the systemic issues perpetuating extreme poverty. Specifically, global citizens everywhere are applying pressure on:
UKGovernment and Labour Opposition to release a time-bound plan for delivering on the £11.6 billion in climate financing pledged at COP26in Glasgow;
- The Government of Canada to continue championing women and girls by pledging to fund vital health services through UNFPA;
- The Government of
Australiato rejoin the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and equip smallholder farmers across the Pacific and the world to combat the global food crisis; and
- Governments everywhere to stop repression of advocates, and take necessary steps to promote freedom of speech and protect them.
Without intervention on these issues, the negative trajectory of the last three years will continue for the world's most marginalized populations.
"We're thrilled to join forces with these passionate artists and advocates to call for urgent action to address the climate crisis, demand equity for women and girls and disrupt the cycles holding people in extreme poverty," said
"Extreme poverty, hunger and food insecurity threaten lives and health. The call for action is crystal clear: We need to increase investments in climate-robust, small-scale food production. Growth in agriculture is the most efficient way to create jobs, fight poverty and combat hunger. The Global Citizen Festival is important to mobilise more people and more investments in reaching the world's Common Goals – our Sustainable Development Goals," said Ms
"As part of its mandate, Afreximbank is proud to support Global Citizen in its efforts to address the issue of extreme poverty by advocating for a more just and equitable global financing system that would pave the way for increased collaboration between the Bank and African Diaspora communities," said Prof. Benedict Oramah, President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Afreximbank. "Providing our Member States with the financial support they need to address and overcome economic challenges, including climate change, food crises, and gender inequity, is imperative in the context of ongoing global economic challenges."
