    Abstract

    Last Friday marked the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. This date has been observed since 1993 when the United Nations designated a day to raise awareness of the need to combat poverty and address inequality. Further, the 2014 UN theme “Leave no one behind: think, decide and act together against extreme poverty” recognizes that we find ourselves at a significant moment when the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) — which have galvanized a large part of the international community since 2000 towards eight goals — is set to expire.

    Leaving no one behind has been the core ideal around discussions towards the post2015 development agenda, which has yet to be finalized but seeks to build on the progress gained by the MDGs and will likely focus on sustainable development bringing prosperity to the world in harmony with nature.
