This research project is focused on defining foreign aid and determining the impact of this aid on the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in developing countries. Specifically, the influence of aid on poverty, hunger, and gender equality is studied in order to better understand socio-economic development in urban and rural settings. It is generally accepted that foreign aid can help alleviate poverty and inequality and stimulate economic growth, but this research aims to increase awareness of the significance of different types of aid and how various distributions can alter the successful realization of sustainable development outcomes.
