UNEP and the
Millennium Development Goals
 

 Related UNEP Activities:


Goal # 1
 
Eradicate Extreme Poverty

Poor people’s livelihoods and food security often depend on ecosystem goods and services.

Poor people tend to have insecure rights to environmental resources and inadequate access to markets, decision-making and environmental information – limiting their capability to protect the environment and improve the livelihoods and wellbeing.

Lack of access to energy services also limits productive opportunities, especially in rural areas.     
Human Development Report / 2003
