Eradicating poverty has been recognized as “the greatest global challenge facing the world today.” With constituencies spanning the globe, the NGO Committee for Social Development knows well the magnitude of this challenge. Yet our work with those facing hardship and exclusion on a daily basis highlights a reality that none can afford to forget: if poverty is to be alleviated in any lasting way, inequality must be addressed as well.
Preparations for the NGO Committee on Social Development Forum to be held on 1 -2 February 2016 are advancing. Would you like to comment on our draft declaration which we are working on at the moment? We would appreciate your reflections.
