What is chronic poverty?

Chronic poverty is the long and grinding poverty that people live in for many years, and for some people, for their whole lives. This poverty is often passed on to their children, creating an inter-generational cycle of poverty. 

Chronically poor people need to be at the centre of poverty reduction policies if we are going to achieve the goal of eradicating extreme poverty for good.
