#NoPoverty – Why and How to Address SDG #1


According to the UN, the global poverty rate increased from 8.3% in 2019 to 9.2% in 2020 due to the pandemic. Moreover, the current inflationary effects of the war may lead to an additional 75 to 95 million people in extreme poverty in 2022. While SDG 1 on eradicating extreme poverty is a crucial goal of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, it may sometimes be less addressed than other objectives.

Women in Sustainable Finance, in collaboration with Enabling Qapital will be hosting an in-person panel on the 12th of January 2023, from 17:30 – 20:00 CET at the EQ offices in Mühlebachstrasse 164, 8008 Zürich, Switzerland.


Among the confirmed panelists are our very own managing partner and Co-Founder, Remo Oswald – an experienced investor in financial inclusion, Tina Ruchti from elea Foundation for Ethics in Globalization – an early-stage capital provider for entrepreneurship specifically targeting poverty, and Julia Meyer from ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences – an experienced researcher in financial inclusion. Together they will be discussing ways to redirect capital towards eradicating poverty globally through different approaches, such as investing in financial inclusion and fostering entrepreneurship.

The event will be free of charge, and you can sign up to join the interesting conversation here.
