New resolution defines future direction for sustainable poverty reduction
Ha Noi - UNDP Deputy Country Director Christophe Bahuet at a conference today applauded Government bodies for their efforts in defining the future direction for sustainable poverty reduction. The new poverty resolution brings together existing programmes and policies into a single harmonized programme for poverty reduction and focuses on the poorest districts, communes and villages.
Speaking on behalf of international development partners, Mr Bahuet highlighted some of the key areas to be addressed when implementing the resolution. For instance, he stressed the central role of the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs in coordinating and providing oversight of work on poverty reduction and ethnic minority affairs. He also suggested Viet Nam should adopt new, internationally-proven poverty reduction approaches, such as block grant funding for local governments and the use of direct cash transfers to poor people.
