Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere

Indeed, even before the pandemic, the movement of worldwide destitution decrease was decelerating, and it was expected that the worldwide objective of finishing neediness by 2030 would be missed. The pandemic is pushing a huge number of people once more into extraordinary neediness. While the pandemic has featured the need to fortify social insurance and crisis readiness and reaction, those measures are not sufficient to defend poor people and the helpless, who most need them.

The accompanying exploration ventures have been explicitly adjusted to Sustainable Development Goal 1 and the plan to end poverty in the entirety of its structures all over. Academics and researchers in İTÜ work on various subjects following SDG 1.

These undertakings and activities are instances of the University's commitment to the SDGs.
