$1 Trillion Commitment

During this week's G-20 summit in London, different world leaders agreed to commit a total of $1.1 trillion towards poverty-reduction efforts. As the economic growth of developing countries slows over the next few years, this contribution will be crucial in helping them progress out of poverty. The decision underscores world leaders' commitment to the Millennium Development Goals, even in the midst of a global crisis.
