Inequality of income, access to health and education, and access to markets for trade is trapping people in a cycle of poverty despite their best efforts. The posters in the “Inequality Matters” series illustrate how much disparity there is in the world even in the fundamental human condition.
The original poster series was conceived and designed by Tom Geismar through AIGA for the Human Development Report Office of the United Nations Development Programme in anticipation of The 2005 World Summit. The Summit, which was held on September 14-16, 2005, was the largest gathering of world leaders in history. Heads of state forged a common agenda on international development, security and human rights.
