Report Release :Eradication of Extreme Poverty China's Practices,Big Earth Data in support of the Sustainable Development Goals

Poverty eradication is a common challenge facing the world. In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in which “Ending poverty in all its forms everywhere” is listed as the primary sustainable development goal, including eradicating extreme poverty for all people everywhere by 2030, charting the course for global poverty reduction.

China attaches great importance to poverty alleviation. Over more than 40 years of reform and opening up since 1978, more than 700 million Chinese have been lifted out of poverty, accounting for more than 70% of global poverty reduction over the same period, creating “a legend of poverty alleviation” in contemporary history.

In September 2020, China and the United Nations jointly organized a high-level video conference on poverty reduction and South-South cooperation. State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended and presided over the meeting, and released two reports, "Eradication of Extreme Poverty China’s Practices" and "Big Earth Data in Support of the Sustainable Development Goals", to provide reference for other countries in poverty reduction and development, reflecting China's support and contribution for the work of the United Nations and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
