Goal 10 is about reducing inequality within and among countries. This goal was not part of the Millennium Development Goals and many fought for its inclusion in the 2030 Agenda against a lot of resistance. Against this background, the inclusion of a goal on inequality in the 2030 Agenda is already a remarkable achievement; even more so when considering the fact that formulating a global goal and targets on inequality is connected with serious difficulties. However, the formulation of the goal is very weak, revealing how difficult it was for UN members to find a consensual formulation. Almost all targets are imprecise and use vague formulations that would provide good means of implementation but not targets – a fact that has to be accepted for the sake of having a goal on inequality at all.
