International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP) was recognized by the United Nations in its resolution 47/196 of 22 December 1992. On that day, the United Nations ensured that the knowledge, contributions and experience of people living in poverty are recognized and celebrated.
This year, the theme of IDEP is “Building Forward Together: Ending Persistent Poverty, Respecting all People and our Planet’’. The Day will offer an opportunity to hear from those who are at the forefront of fighting poverty while also facing the Covid-19 pandemic and the effects of climate change.
The commemoration of IDEP 2021 will take place on Zoom, on Friday October 15th, 2021 from 10am to 11:30am EST.
