At the Poverty and Growth Program of the World Bank Institute we are organizing an E-learning course on "Economic Literacy for Civil Society", which will be based on the lecture notes we have been posting in the Fridays Academy series during the last few months.


Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Ignacio Hernandez's picture

The Day seeks to promote increased awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and serves to remind all people that sustained and concerted effort is vital to achieve the millennium development goal (MDG) of halving, betwen 1990 and 2015, the number of people living in poverty (less than 1 dollar a day).
