International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, 17 October 2013
The 2013 Commemoration of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP) will be held on Thursday, 17 October at United Nations Headquarters in New York, focusing on the theme - "Working together towards a world without discrimination: Building on the experience and knowledge of people in extreme poverty".
 
This year's event is organized in partnership with the International Movement ATD Fourth World, the NGO Sub-committee for the Eradication of Poverty and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, supported by the Missions of France and Burkina Faso to the United Nations.
 
The 2013 theme highlights the discrimination that people face on a daily basis because of poverty, their marginalization in the political, economic and social spheres of their societies, and their lack of voice and representation in the conceptualisation, implementation and evaluation of policies and programmes that affect them directly and indirectly.
 
Help the United Nations to raise awareness about the progress made and the challenges that remain in the fight against poverty. Use #EndPoverty to post your messages about the Millennium Development Goals and the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
