|MANILA Cheap Jordan 14 For Sale , Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Policymakers in developing Asia need to provide decent jobs, livable cities, and disaster prevention programs if they want to end poverty by 2030, according to a report issued Friday by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Cheap Jordan 13 For Sale , the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, and the United Nations Development Programme.
According to the report "Asia-Pacific Aspirations: Perspectives for a Post-2015 Development Agenda," although most Asia-Pacific economies succeeded in reducing poverty levels, about 1.64 billion people still live on less than two dollars a day. There's also the problems of rising inequality Cheap Jordan 12 For Sale , indicating that the benefits of recent economic gains were not distributed evenly. Lack of decent and productive jobs kept most people in the region poor.
"Economic growth is not generating sufficient decent and productive employment. This is due to the nature of growth and the pattern of structural change in many countries in which workers move from agriculture into low-productivity services," the report said.
The Asia-Pacific region also remains off-track in meeting its Millennium Development Goals (MDG) on hunger, health, and sanitation. The report said the region remains home to two-thirds of the world's poor Cheap Jordan 11 For Sale , and more than 60 percent of its hungry people.
This is even if the region only has less than 1,000 days to meet its MDG commitments for 2015.
The report proposes 12 specific goals that policymakers in the region can implement in order to end poverty and raise quality of life by 2030.
"The Millennium Development Goals have been a powerful tool for rallying global support around common objectives including poverty reduction," said Kazu Sakai, Director General of ADB's Strategy and Policy Department.
"The report proposes the inclusion of new goals on zero income poverty and zero hunger and malnutrition by as early as 2030 Cheap Jordan 10 For Sale , as part of a broad post-2015 agenda," Sakai said.
Apart from aiming to eliminate poverty, hunger and malnutrition, the report said a potential set of future goals could include gender equality; decent jobs for everyone of working age; health and quality education for all; improved living conditions with a focus on the poor; livable cities; environmental responsibility and management of natural resources; disaster risk reduction; accountable and responsive governments; and strong development partnerships.
The region must also address new emerging challenges like rising inequalities Cheap Air Jordan 12 Dark Grey Mens For Sale , unplanned urbanization, climate change, pollution, and water scarcity.
