          2011 United Nations Sessions

 17 Oct: International Day for the Eradication of Poverty 2011

  • The 2011 Commemoration of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP) will be held on Monday, 17 October at United Nations Headquarters in New York, focusing on the theme "From Poverty to Sustainability:People at the Centre of Inclusive Development". With global attention focused on the upcoming Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), it is critical to draw attention to the importance of poverty eradication for building sustainable futures for all. People living in poverty face increasingly difficult challenges as climate change, environmental degradation and rising food prices threaten their livelihoods and survival. The path to sustainable development must ensure that people living in poverty are included in decision-making processes, and that concrete action is taken to respond to their needs and demands.

31 Oct: 7 Billion People | 7 Billion Actions
The world’s population will top seven billion people in October 2011.

The campaign’s key launching activities will take place in September and October, culminating on “7 Billion day” (31st October, 2011).
