On the 17th of October we celebrate the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty has been observed every year since 1993, when the United Nations General Assembly, by resolution 47/196, designated this day to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries. Fighting poverty remains at the core of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the development of the post-2015 development agenda.
WFTO attended the PRICE project meeting last 16 and 17 September 2014. Chief Executive Natalia Leal represented WFTO during the meeting in Poros, Greece. Project partners discussed the accomplishments and future plans for the project, and issues like Fair Trade public procurement and the role of the public sector on the promotion of Fair Trade. Project partner Fair Trade Hellas hosted the meeting.
