Poverty reduction, or poverty alleviation, is a set of measures, both economic and humanitarian, that are intended to permanently lift people out of poverty. Measures, like those promoted by Henry George in his economics classic Progress and Poverty, are those that raise, or are intended to raise, ways of enabling the poor to create wealth for themselves as a means of ending poverty forever

177 programmes that are carefully targeted at the poor areas. For the purpose of ascertaining their effectiveness, these should also have a time frame. In an attempt to identify what the government is doing to deal with the poverty dilemma in South Africa, the general focus of chapter five was on the various poverty reduction strategies that have been implemented by the government ever since the demise of apartheid.

International poverty trends B. Who are the poor? C. Where do the poor .

By measuring poverty we learn which poverty reduction strategies work, and which ones do no. The observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty can be traced back to 17 October 1987.

The observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty can be traced back to 17 October 1987. On that day, over a hundred thousand people gathered at the Trocadéro in Paris, where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed in 1948, to honour the victims of extreme poverty, violence and hunger.

Good governance alone will not end poverty, but we. .

Good governance alone will not end poverty, but we cannot significantly reduce poverty, especially within a human rights approach, without good governance. Apart from being borne primarily by the poor, such socio-economic conditions obviously impede economic development and poverty alleviation, and contribute to the country s haemorrhaging of skills commonly known as the brain drain which further retards economic growth. The continued existence of poor governance in South Africa is ironic in some respects, since the ruling ANC is a legitimate and popularly elected government.

The poor have long subsisted through such diversified livelihood strategies .

The poor have long subsisted through such diversified livelihood strategies, combining various types of formal and informal work to make ends meet. Several forces are driving this shift. Yet, this shift in the labour market could also offer opportunities for both the middle class and the global poor. In the development context, economic development programmes will need to be built more deliberately around the concept of quasi-formal and informal employment options.

Between 45-57% of South Africans are estimated to be engulfed by poverty. In an attempt to identify policy instruments that could help change this status quo, this book reviews the various strategies that have been implemented in countries (e.g. China, Vietnam and Uganda), which are known to have been relatively successful in reducing poverty. In the process, the literature regarding poverty is laboured upon, and this is done with a particular emphasis on the definition, measurement and determinants thereof. Furthermore, South Africa's anti-poverty strategies are discussed. It turns out that these have met limited success. This is largely due to insufficient pro-poor economic growth, weak implementation/administration at the municipal level, slow asset redistribution, high income/wealth inequality, low job generation rates by SMME's, and a slow reduction in the HIV/AIDS infection rate. This book should be of particular interest to policy authorities in government as well as professionals that work in institutions that have pro-poor development at the forefront of their policy agenda.
