Global poverty needs prompt and effective action. The 1.2 billion people still living in extreme poverty require support by all development partners, at a local, national and international level. Regional associations of nations have unrealised potential to strengthen social investment for global poverty reduction. This potential needs greater recognition and support from the UN, the World Bank and other international development partners.
