Theme for 2013:
The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty has been
observed every year since 1993, when the United Nations General
Assembly, by resolution 47/196,
designated this day to promote awareness of the need to eradicate
poverty and destitution in all countries. Fighting poverty remains at
the core of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the post-2015 development agenda.
