Poverty eradication: growth, social inclusion and climate change
CPAN Panel Discussion to mark IDEP 2018
The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty 2018 calls for an end to poverty by “Coming together with those furthest behind to build an inclusive world of universal respect for human rights and dignity.” Since 1992, this day has been an opportunity to platform the work that individuals and organisations do to contribute to poverty eradication globally.
In the spirit of this year’s theme, the Chronic Poverty Advisory Network (CPAN) brought together key thinkers and policy-makers working on poverty eradication in a panel discussion event hosted at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) in London on Wednesday 17th October.
To learn more about the discussions, see the video of the event below.
Drawing on CPAN's latest poverty dynamics research findings, the discussions highlighted the ways in which economic growth, inclusive governance and climate change mitigation can tackle chronic poverty and support those who have been 'left behind' in recent efforts to drive economic development.
The event convened leading experts in the fields of growth, social inclusion and climate change to discuss how joining together these key themes can contribute to ending chronic poverty by 2030.
The expert panel considered three key questions in their discussions:
What can be learned from studies across country contexts about the successes and pitfalls of poverty eradication policies?
How do the areas of economic growth, inclusive governance and climate change impact on poverty eradication?
Why is it essential to consider these key fields together when formulating effective policy solutions to bring an end to chronic poverty?
More information can be found in the event's concept note.
