2010 UNDESA report on the World Economic Situation: Rethinking Poverty.

The Report on the World Social Situation 2010 seeks to contribute to rethinking poverty and its eradication. Following the review of global poverty trends contained in chapter II, chapters III and IV reflect on broader issues of measurement, with a view to widening the understanding of poverty in its various dimensions. Chapters V through VIII critically examine the conventional policy framework and popular poverty reduction programmes in the context of the persistence of poverty, rising inequality and lacklustre growth performance in many developing countries until very recently. Chapter IX argues that a commitment to eradicating poverty and to enhancing equity and social integration requires consistent actions directed towards sustainable economic growth, productive employment creation and social development, entailing an integrated approach to economic and social policies for the benefit of all citizens.
