Mar 7, 2014
This year’s International Women’s Day theme – Equality for Women is Progress for All – states a simple truth. No country will reach its full potential if its female citizens do not enjoy full equality. As the 2015 end date of the Millennium Development Goals nears, and as discussion on the next global development agenda intensifies, there is strong momentum for achieving development with equity, including by eradicating gender inequality and empowering women and girls.

THE UNDP ADMINISTRATOR STATEMENT ON THE INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR ERADICATION OF POVERTY
Oct 17, 2013
World leaders meeting a few weeks ago at the UN Special Event on the Millennium Development Goals underscored their commitment “to free humanity from poverty and hunger as a matter of urgency.” In their efforts to accelerate progress to meet the MDGs by their 2015 target date and agree to an ambitious new post-2015 global development agenda, they expressed their resolve to ensure the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people remain at the fore. The theme of this year’s International Day for the Eradication of Poverty “Working together towards a World without discrimination: Building on the experience and knowledge of people in extreme poverty,” reminds us that this objective will require that all of us, as individual citizens, community activists, development actors, and decision-makers confront discrimination in all its manifestations.
