Poverty reduction for sustainable development: Analyzing Millennium Development Goal (Goal 1) in South Africa
MetadataShow full item record
In order to improve the lives of impoverished and disadvantaged people, the United Nations (UN) geared up a Millennium Declaration known as Millennium Development Goals. The first MDG has two targets, namely to halve, between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people whose income is less than one dollar a day; and to halve, between 1990 an 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger. This article examines the role of South African Government in achieving the Goal 1. Through a descriptive and analytical approach, the article reflects on the progress of South Africa by evaluating its country level poverty reduction initiatives, and aims to provide recommendations to reinforce sustainable development in South Africa.
