October 17, International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

2017 Theme: A path toward peaceful and inclusive societies; end poverty

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal to “end poverty in all its forms everywhere” explicitly recognizes that poverty results not from the lack of just one thing but from many different interrelated factors that affect the lives of people living in poverty.

This means we must go beyond seeing poverty merely as the lack of income or what is necessary for material well-being — such as food, housing, land, and other assets – in order to fully understand poverty in its multiple dimensions.

The theme this year – selected in consultation with activists, civil society, and non-governmental organizations – highlights how important it is to recognize and address the humiliation and exclusion endured by many people living in poverty.
