Африка няма да успее да намали наполовина бедността до 2015 г., твърди Икономическата комисия за Африка

Източник: Medical News Today, 29 март 2010

Изпълнителният секретар на Икономическата комисия за Африка на ООН Абдули Джанех каза, че глобалната икономическа криза ще попречи на Африка да изпълни Целите на хилядолетието за развитие (ЦХР) за намаляване на бедността наполовина до 2015 г.

„Смяташе се, че Африка е до голяма степен защитена от най-лошите ефекти на глобалната икономическа криза, но прогнозите за добър ръст не се сбъднаха заради нея.”

„Глобалната финансова криза засегна ръста в Африка и има бедствени последствия за африканските страни по отношение на намаляването на бедността,” каза Джанех по време на съвместната конференция на ИКА и Африканския съюз (АС) в Лилонгве, Малави.

Абдули Джанех определи ХИВ/СПИН, природните бедствия и продължаващите конфликти като фактори, които също пречат на икономическото развитие на Африка. В свое изказване Джанех каза, че по време на срещата на ИКА и АС ще бъде дискутиран доклад за прогреса на Африка относно изпълнението на ЦХР като подготовка за срещата на ООН на високо ниво по въпроса на ЦХР в Ню Йорк през септември.
