Humans strive for a better life in any waypossible. The quest for improved living
standards has resulted to the consideration of resource sustainability and degradation of the
environment. However, improved living standards are not attainable by all individuals across
the globe. This paper will focus on the issues that hinder environmentalsustainability and the
efforts taken by the United Nations to ensure thatpeople living in third world countries are
provided with social amenities.
The first goal of the United Nations is to mitigate poverty levelseverywhere in all its
forms. According to United Nationsorganization, extreme poverty can be ended through
universal social protection, systems that safeguard all individuals throughout their life cycle.
Moreover, it should also reduce the vulnerability to disasters(McCollum, et. al., 2018).
The second goal is to end hunger and achieve food security. Despite the previous
efforts on the war against hunger, which had seen the decline in lack of foodsecurity, hunger
is on the rise again. The issues that have brought back hunger include climate change, natural
disasters, and drought.

ensure improvements in industrial energy efficiency and electrification in the least developed
countries by 2030.
Promotion of sustainable and inclusive economic growth also falls under the
organization’s goals. This goal will work to increase employment opportunities and reduce

goal will ensure sustained and inclusive economic growth by promoting safe and secure
working environments, and access to financial services(Buse,& Hawkes, 2015).
Another goal is to achieve a sustainable and inclusive industrialization through
merging and unleashing competitive economic forces to create income and employment and
