Press/Media: Research

Release date: 30/6/2019

Description

What enhances poverty eradication? This column presents new evidence on global variation in poverty reduction during the period since the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were established in 2000. The authors conclude that the adoption of development goals per se may not be enough to eradicate poverty. Institutional conditions at the national level matter, as developing countries with the greatest state effectiveness can reduce income poverty much faster than those with the least effective states.
