SDG Watch highlights EPIC as exemplary SDG1 solution
Today is SDG Action Day 2020, an important occasion to advocate for more ambitious policy and funding to achieve a truly sustainable world in which no one is left behind. On this occasion, SDG Watch Europe has published a special report on how the EU might step up its efforts to achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals 2030). In this important report, called ‘Time to reach for the moon – The EU needs to step up action and lead the transformation to sustainability’, Help a Child’s EPIC approach is highlighted on page 41 as an exemplary solution to SDG1, ending poverty.
EPIC stands for Economic Program with Impact on Children (EPIC): a program for fragile, rural communities, with special attention to children’s needs. It combines best practices and lessons learned in relation to social resilience, economic development, and child development, such as holistic child view, integrated farm planning (PIP) and community involvement from the very design of the program.
