Our Common Goal: International Experience in Poverty Reduction
This book presents the vast experience gained internationally in addressing some of the most important poverty challenges that China will face in the coming years, both in the drive to eliminate extreme rural poverty by 2020 and in the effort
to sustain and expand that achievement in the years after 2020. The examples presented cover a broad range of sectors, countries and types, from small-scale grass roots technical assistance targeting poor farming households in Low Income Countries (LIC) to major national policy reforms in health and social protection in Upper Middle Income Countries (UMIC). Some examples are cited from
Upper Income Countries (UIC) as well. Many of the examples are drawn from the work the development agencies of the United Nations have undertaken with member nations around the globe. Many present the work of other development organisations, while others highlight government innovations in poverty alleviation.
