The fulfillment of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1 and 2 - ending Extreme Poverty and Hunger - is possible, but extremely difficult. What is necessary is a Global Agency (AGaPHE) whose peripheral units would directly hand a conditional cash transfer of one euro per day over to extremely poor people. This solution has many advantages: it allows for the immediate relief of destitution, avoiding the intermediation of local political and bureaucratic actors; it can also curb the demographic explosion, defuse terrorism, reduce migratory pressures, foster the development of poorer countries, take care of natural environment and resources and contain the neo-nationalist and xenophobic wave in Western political systems. The AGaPHE could also absorb some of the consequences of humanitarian crises, which trigger the flows of asylum-seekers.
