Implementation of the Second United Nations Decade for the Eradication of Poverty, 2008-2017

Wednesday, 27 August 2014
Implementation of the Second United Nations Decade for the Eradication of Poverty, 2008-2017

While progress in reducing poverty has been remarkable in some regions and countries, the uneven progress across regions and within countries remains a major concern. Much more must be done to ensure that the goal of poverty eradication is linked to the formulation of social, economic and environmental policies at all decision-making levels. To eliminate extreme poverty, policy efforts at the subnational, national, regional and global levels must go beyond addressing its symptoms to building the physical, social, economic and political infrastructure needed to sustain poverty eradication efforts.

The present report discusses progress and challenges to poverty eradication and presents some policy considerations  within the context of the objectives of the Second Decade and the related system-wide plan of action. It also highlights the latest activities of the United Nations system in this area and proposes a number of recommendations for consideration by the General Assembly to implement the system-wide plan of action for the Second Decade.
