Iran SDG2: what are the chances of eradicating hunger?
SDG2 is a 300-page report with nine chapters that examine the Iranian regime’s behavior 26 years after the Beijing Conference on Women’s Rights. This report examines the Iranian regime’s actions in relation to the United Nations’ Second Sustainable Development Goal, also known as SDG2. SDG2 aims to achieve “zero hunger.” It is one of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
No hope to eradicate poverty in Iran by 2030
The supreme leader of the mullahs, Ali Khamenei, has direct control over all mega institutions or through his Revolutionary Guard Corps, the IRGC. They plunder the country’s wealth and natural resources, pocketing the proceeds.
After 43 years, the mullahs have brought nothing but death and destruction to the Iranian people. Iran is ranked as one of the unhappiest countries in the world, with 80 percent of the population living in poverty. Despite the country’s vast national wealth and oil reserves, the middle class has all but vanished, and the vast majority of Iranians live in poverty.
Experts estimate that one-third of Iran’s low-income families, or about 5 million people, live in extreme poverty and hunger, earning only 1 million Tomans per month, or about $30. Then there’s the fact that 67 percent of the population lives in poverty.
In Iran, the majority of social ills have taken on a female face. A large number of runaway girls, prostitution and human trafficking, the sale of body organs, the sale of infants, and poverty are just a few of the problems that women and girls face.
Women’s employment in Iran has hovered around 12% at best over the years. But why is that?
Only 4 million women are economically active out of more than 32 million women who are eligible to work. The job market in Iran is rife with discrimination against women. That means that 87-88 percent of Iranian women have no economic role and no source of income.
Approximately 80% of the Iranian population is impoverished.
Because of low wages, inflation, and high prices, many basic food staples have been removed from people’s food baskets.
There was a recent outburst of widespread protests across the country in response to an increase in the price of macaroni and bread. Because a loaf of bread is no longer affordable.
Iran’s population is malnourished to a large extent. They do not have sufficient access to the nutritious food they require. Because almost all food items, not just the basic staples, are out of reach for most people.
