Goal One: End poverty in all its forms
The San Diego region has one of the highest costs of living in the United States. As a result, basic needs such as housing, food, and transportation have become less accessible in the region. SANDAG is working to counter these effects through its housing programs and implementation of the 2021 Regional Plan. SANDAG is not alone in these efforts. Many other organizations throughout the region are working to improve access to basic needs including San Diego County Food Vision 2030, a 10-year strategic plan to ensure the region has a just, equitable, and resilient food system.
By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $36 per day.
