SDG #1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making.
To ascertaing which factors affect the wellbeing of Curaçao's inhabitants and put them at risk of falling into poverty or keep them in poverty, it is essential to understand poverty from a multidimensional perspective. In addition, many forms of exclusion transcend income and are associated with unequal treatment, discrimination, violence or stigmatization based on ethnicity, gender, sexual identity and orientation, disabilities, or other.
The Roadmap outlines the following drivers:
Social support & care
Decent jobs for all
Adequate housing for vulnerable families and youth
Improved sense of safety for families and youth
Institutional reform for poverty reduction
