Today's topic is serious, Poverty.
Encouraged by Masataka, I'm writing my opinion.
Yesterday, Human Development Report 2005 was published by UNDP.(日本語概要はこちら) It mainly discusses dissolution of unfairness, reform of international trade system, and security.
Since world leaders adopted Millenium Declaration, we have made efforts for poverty reduction according to Millenium Development Goals, and indeed the tendency to emphasize poverty reduction has been getting bigger.
HOWEVER, can the world really accomplish the goals?
Few of my friends know MDGs ITSELF, and even those friends don't know the CONTENTS and MEANINGS of MDGs.
Without understanding the problem, how can we solve it?
As I wrote last time, Katrina killed thousands of American people. Many people and victims must feel sad and ask THEIR god for help.
However, how many of them know that their government are making dicisions which will interrupt actions for poverty reduction, and may kill millions of people in result?
Thinking about such things, I feel very hollow...
The first step is to know the truth.
Despite now is the time to act specifically, many(or perhaps almost?) people have not made even the first step. It's quite regrettable for me.
I earnestly hope that All people make the first step.
Where is answer?…の続きを読む
