We ended 2015 with good news: For the first time in history, the number of extremely poor people dropped below 10 percent. The new sustainable development goals and the Paris climate deal bring momentum to our effort to lift the remaining 700 million poor out of poverty while generating climate-smart economic growth. Hardly ever before did so many governments, businesses, international organizations, and civil society leaders agree on such ambitious targets and put global public goods before national interests.
In her presentation Sri Mulyani Indrawati will discuss these challenges as well as explore possible solutions that are economically smart and preserve and increase the gains we have made in the fight against poverty.
