I Would Not Allow One Man’s Livelihood To Become Another Man’s Gold Mine

One of the top priorities for the  Sustainable Development Goals is to ‘End Poverty In All Its Forms Everywhere’ by 2030.

There are over 7 billion people in the world, and although the proportion of people living on less than $1.25 a day has halved since the 1990s, 1.4 billion still survive on this amount a day or less.

If we are to have any form of global financial equality to end the perennial ache for the people who suffer from extreme poverty, then we need to enforce land grabbing transparency and ensure it’s mutually beneficial to the native people as well.

If I were Prime Minister… I would invest in lands and farmers to replenish existing agriculture, and not permit UK/foreign companies and private investors to land grab from the poorest countries without greatly benefitting the locals, as this hugely discourages an even distribution of global wealth.
