Reducing poverty is achievable

Be heard at the OECD Global Forum on Development!

Reducing poverty is achievable
Finding those who are hidden by inequalities 

The OECD Global Forum on Development (GFD) will be convened on 4-5 April 2013, with discussions by renowned experts and leading policy-makers focusing on the global development agenda beyond 2015. The Wikiprogress community and partners are holding a public consultation* on this topic from 6-15 March. The outcomes will be presented at the Forum.

The topic of the online consultation

One of the key ways to address the inequalities which cause poverty is ensuring development is about people and how they live together. Ahead of the OECD GFD, Wikiprogress would like to highlight the individuals, families, communities and societies that have been hidden by social and economic inequalities. We would also like to bring to light the stories of successful programmes, policies and methodologies which have made a difference in people’s lives. The discussion opens on 6 March and closes on 15 March 2013 at 17h (GMT+1). The Global Forum on Development invites you to share your stories and/or solutions for:
  • People who are, have been or might be hidden from economic growth.
  • People who are, have been or might be hidden from social programmes.
  • People who are, have been or might be hidden from statistics and what this means for the well-being of societies.
