October 17th - End Poverty Day 2020 - Surmounting Setbacks
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year – for the first time in over two decades – the extreme poverty rate will rise, reversing a downward trend that existed since 1998. Thus, End Poverty Day 2020 will not be an opportunity to celebrate progress, as it has been in previous years. Instead, it will be a critical moment to emphasize the reversal of global gains in poverty reduction, including in Kazakhstan, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and to focus attention on supporting a resilient recovery.
