International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

EVENT: Chronic Poverty Advisory Network panel discussion - Leaving No One Behind.

17 October 2018 | London, UK

In the spirit of this year's theme, the Chronic Poverty Advisory Network (CPAN) is bringing together key thinkers and policy-makers working with poverty eradication, inclusive growth, social inclusion and climate change to discuss how joining together these key themes can contribute to ending chronic poverty by 2030.

Drawing on CPAN's latest poverty dynamics research findings, the discussions will highlight 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 expert panel will consider 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?

Date and Time: 17 October (16:30-19:30)
Location: Overseas Development Institute (ODI), London, UK
