About the product

Attacking poverty directly, as a matter of human rights, to accelerate development and to reduce inequality within and among nations, has become an urgent global priority. World leaders have agreed on a variety of new initiatives, including the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).This year's State of the World Population report is a contribution to the discussion and a guide to action. This publication characterizes poverty by reviewing its many dimensions and looks at several of the key issues including, poverty and gender, poverty and health and poverty and education. It outlines a framework and provides recommendations to meet the poverty eradication goal of reducing the number of poor in half, by 2015.This publication comes complete with expert analysis, prescriptions for the future and a wealth of statistics, graphs and indicators.
