We are proud to invite you to the 6th International Conference on Poverty and Sustainable Development 2019 (ICPSD 2019) which will be held from  05th – 06th December 2019 in Colombo Sri Lanka under the theme “SDG 1 : A World free from Want: Poverty and Social Exclusion in the 21st Century”

Poverty and its Eradication

This conference will focus on issues of poverty and its eradication, social inequality, race relations, policy management and mismanagement with an international perspective. Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making. Today, the number of people living in extreme poverty globally remains unacceptably high. According to poverty experts and given global growth forecasts, poverty reduction may not be fast enough to attain the goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030. Finding new solutions and methods for facing the challenge of eradicating poverty through a global dialogue is very important.
