GCAP Statement on the ‘International Day for the Eradication of Poverty – 17 October’

The ‘International Day for the Eradication of Poverty’ is very important for GCAP as it aligns with our global strategy and objective. The new GCAP with a renewed mandate commits itself to work towards not only eradicating poverty but to also fight rising inequality with new vigour and commitment.The presence of poverty, insecurity and inequalities continues to be a scandal in a world where knowledge and resources exist to ensure healthy and dignified lives for all.  While a few consume in an extremely unsustainable manner and accumulate soaring wealth, billions of others have no access to adequate food, safe drinking water, proper sanitation, housing, health, education, security and justice.Women, children and socially excluded people still comprise the vast majority of people living in poverty and face harsh discrimination - and often violence - on a daily basis.  It is also worrying that women lack economic empowerment and social protection and continue to live in a context that places them in a situation of vulnerability to violence patriarchy both in home and in society. Furthermore, today, marginalization is seen everywhere – from the poorest to the richest countries. Large-scale migration, displacements and the sharp increase in the number of refugees - resulting from poverty, conflicts and environmental degradation - is an alarming result of these trends.

Queridos colegas, 

Es bueno ver la enorme energía y todas las actividades sobre los ODS y la Agenda 2030. Esto no es un programa lejano a la ONU y que solamente se presenta en los papeles. Muchos actores diferentes están trabajando en la gran transformación - desde organizaciones de mujeres, científicos y empresas. La participación de muchos jóvenes que acompañan la causa es aún más alentadora.
