OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION

The Programme promotes and enhances partnerships with government, civil society and the private sector to reduce poverty and achieve the MDGs by 2015. As of 2009 the Philippines had a poverty incidence of 26.5% of population against a 2015 target of 16.6%. This means that from 2010 to 2015, an estimated 10 million poor Filipinos must rise above poverty.
