Up and Out of Poverty Ep. 8: On the Road Again

The year 2020 is now officially a milestone in history. In total, China has successfully lifted 98.99 million people in 832 poverty-stricken counties out of poverty, fulfilling its promise to build a society of shared prosperity. Based on the target set by the United Nation's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, China has achieved its goal ten years ahead of schedule. China's success in poverty alleviation can be attributed largely to its precise target strategies which were able to identify the neediest areas, assess their strengths and weaknesses, and provide means for them to flourish. Its focused and systematic approach mobilized governments at all levels, clearly defining the obligations of their poverty alleviation workers, as well as what policies were available and what investments were viable. In short, the strategy recognized who needed help, how they should be helped and what kind of exit strategy would lead to stabilization.
