Poverty Reduction

OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION

Poverty is multidimensional, involving not only a lack of income, but also ill-health, illiteracy, lack of access to basic social services, and little opportunity to participate in the processes that influence people's lives. Poverty reduction therefore is at the centre of UNDP-led development work. While economic growth is essential to human progress, it is not sufficient for achieving the Millennium Development Goals. UNDP supports countries in accelerating inclusive growth to ensure equitable and broad-based human development.
