Ending Global Poverty

We live in a world of enormous opportunity for some but unacceptable hunger and poverty for many millions of others, the majority of whom live in developing countries.  Changes for the better in the lives of poor people and communities require political commitment and action by all of us, by developing country governments by the international community.  Ireland’s response to global poverty is informed by a deep understanding of the complex causes of poverty and by our commitment to the Millennium Development Goals.
