Failure to successfully meet targets set up in Goal 10 will result in: 

  • growing social inequality,
  • lack of sustainable economic growth,
  • growing conflict and social instability.

Currently, the problems are on a large scale and are as follows:

  • According to a 2020 Credit Suisse report, the richest 1% of the global population owns more than 44% of the world's wealth, while the poorest 50% own just 1.2% of that wealth.
  • UNESCO reports that around the world 258 million children and young people have no access to education. In some regions, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, educational inequalities are particularly pronounced, where children from poor families have limited access to schooling.
  • According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), approximately 470 million people around the world live in poverty, they work but do not earn enough to avoid poverty. That's over 8% of the global workforce.
  • Many studies indicate that gender inequalities exist. For example, in some countries women earn on average 20-30% less than men for the same work.
