Poverty is not fate
The world is confronted with new challenges, so called Millennium Development Goals, which emphasize and draw up strategies in particular for poverty reduction in well-defined horizons. In several reports, produced by world known institutions and experts, predicts that many developing
countries see these frustrated ambitions.
Regardless of the various perceptions of poverty and the many possible definitions of the concept, poverty is nonetheless an objective and visible phenomenon that can be defined as a state of grace and an important condition of inability to meet basic human needs in terms of food, clothing, and access to potable water, sanitation, housing, health care and education. We can also define poverty as the inability that some people have in reaching a certain level of income or consumption, known as the roof of poverty. Poverty can also be defined as the deprivation of choice that allows individuals to have a decent life. These opportunities cover all aspects of social life that constitute the human right to a dignified life,
including through access to food, health, education, decent work, a suitable housing, to clothing, justice, etc. …
Maybe we should start to question and reflect on the true causes of these successive failures, because the chronically illness should be cured from the roots. The options must be based on promoting social dialogue to facilitate understanding and consensus building for the big global issues. The training of social and economic actors who can participate actively and responsibly in the definition, implementation and supervision of the whole process of socio-economic development of their
countries, in general, and particularly favour an approach that takes into account not only economic aspects but also the social, human, environmental and institutional of that concept. This means, in other words, that issues such as good governance, fighting corruption, respecting human rights, gender equality, capacity building, improvement of social service delivery, increase the productive capacity of agriculture and fisheries, conservation of the environment, among others, should receive increased attention in the combating and reducing poverty. Finally, create synergies to facilitate the creation of
an enabling environment that allows pool and leverage the efforts between public actors of civil society, donors, etc., to manage institutional development.
The examples show that poverty is not fate; it can be reduced and eradicated, since the society organizes itself.
We must learn from the successes of others.
