However, eradicating poverty in the world seems a "mission impossible".According to the U.N. Development Program's Human Development report 2016, one in five people in developing regions still live on less than $1.25 a day, and there are millions more who make just a few dollars more than this daily amount, while many other people risk falling back into poverty. Particularly, high poverty rates are often found in small, fragile and conflict-affected countries, accounting for around 70 percent of the global total of extremely poor people.Although poverty is one of the most familiar and lasting conditions known to humanity, it is an extremely complex concept to understand.So tackling poverty is a key element to boost economic growth while reducing other socioeconomic problems.At the end, the goal of "No Poverty" may not be a "mission impossible" if every one of us thinks humanly when acting.
