FAO strengthens efforts to lift rural people out of extreme poverty

20.06.2019 18:51 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of this week, FAO has launched a new program titled Corporate Framework on Rural Extreme Poverty to accelerate the FAO and its partners’ efforts towards eradicating extreme poverty for all people worldwide by 2030 ( target 1.1 of Sustainable Development Goal 1 — to end poverty), FAO reports. As to the report, since 1990, global progress on poverty reduction has been unprecedented. Today, however, about 736 million people (10% of the global population) are still living within extreme poverty (which is currently recognized as people living on below US$1.90 a day). Given these trends, FAO believes that more needs to be done to reach the extreme poor who live predominantly in rural areas. It is to be admitted, the program puts forwards four priority areas for FAO work across 130 countries: ensuring food security and nutrition; promoting economic inclusion; fostering environmentally sustainable and resilient livelihoods; and preventing and protecting the extreme poor against risks and shocks. Also, the program acknowledges that poverty can be measured over a number of dimensions — not only based on the people income or spending power, but also on their health and educational status, access to services, living standards, and overall well-being. «FAO is stepping up its efforts to end extreme poverty. This is important as it will also bring us closer to ending hunger and malnutrition and reaching other SDGs. When the extreme poor have means to improve their lives, they no longer suffer from hunger and can invest into a better future for their families and communities,» FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva admitted while commenting on the program.
