The number of people living in extreme poverty rose by 115 million in 2020, according to the World Bank – the first increase since 1999. Over the previous 20 years, the number had fallen by one billion despite a growing global population. A living wage and decent working conditions are essential to avoid extreme needs. Multi-stakeholder partnerships can achieve a great deal in this regard, for instance, when they cover the entire value chain.

This factsheet uses the example of the Alliance for Sustainable Textiles to illustrate what this can look like in concrete terms and what multi-stakeholder partnerships are already contributing today, for instance, in the area of fair and ecological textiles, to reduce poverty and fulfill SDG1.
