WOIMA aligning with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere



Extreme poverty rates have been cut by more than half since 1990. While this is a remarkable achievement, one in five people in developing regions still live on less than $2 a day, and there are millions more who make little more than this daily amount, plus many people risk slipping back into poverty.

Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.

  • 800 million people live below the international poverty line of $2 a day
  • Almost 10% of the world’s workers lived with their families on less than $2 per person per day
  • The overwhelming majority of people living below the poverty line belong to two regions: Southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa
  • High poverty rates are often found in small, fragile and conflict-affected countries
  • One in four children under age five in the world has inadequate height for his or her age
  • Over 40,000 people have to abandon their homes every day to seek protection due to conflict

WOIMA is committed to helping the developing countries in their fight against poverty, pollution and climate change. The tool is our modular wasteWOIMA® waste-to-energy power plant that will

  • incinerate cleanly the waste of 100,000 – 500,000 people
  • generate affordable energy for 50,000 – 100,000 people
  • employ 100 – 200 people
  • generate hundreds of jobs up- and downstream
  • save 100,000 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per year
  • be up and running within 12 months

UN has set the following targets by 2030, supported by WOIMA and our modular wasteWOIMA® waste-to-energy power plant

  • Eradicate extreme poverty (living at <$2 per day) for all people everywhere
  • Reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women and children living in poverty
  • Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all and achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable
  • Ensure that all men and women have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services
  • Reduce their exposure and vulnerability of the poor to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters
  • Ensure significant mobilization of resources to provide adequate and predictable means to implement programmes and policies to end poverty
  • Create sound policy frameworks at the national, regional and international levels to support accelerated investment in poverty eradication actions
