Economic Empowerment Critical To Poverty Reduction, Report Says

The Guardian: Generate decent jobs ‘or a billion people will remain in extreme poverty’
“Up to a billion people will remain in extreme poverty by 2030 unless countries focus on inequalities and confront social, economic, and cultural forces that block their escape or pull them back into impoverishment, a major report warns. The report by the Chronic Poverty Advisory Network (CPAN) asserts that many people may rise above the poverty line of $1.25 a day, only to tumble back when they are hit by a combination or sequence of shocks such as drought, illness, and insecurity or conflict…” (Tran, 3/10).
