Poverty. It's the first word that comes to most of our minds when thinking about our global issues, and it's one of the first issues the United Nations tackled in their latest 15-year plan. With 1 in 7 people in the world living on less than $1.25 every day, poverty is a problem that impacts over one billion people.

Other issues the U.N. tackle are Water, Sanitation and Disease, Lack of Education, Climate Change and Inequality.
