Poverty is not just a lack of access to food, shelter, healthcare, and sanitation. Poverty is a persistent feeling of distress and hopelessness, declining self-esteem, social exclusion, and exclusion from decision-making structures, and unequal access to justice. We have the means to eradicate poverty it is simply a matter of getting the policies right. We must address the underlying causes of poverty within and across countries. Notably: corruption conflict cross-border crime extreme climate changes and a shortfall in financing for development. Through Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, the world agreed to eradicate poverty We have made some progress in lifting people out of poverty: today there are fewer people living in slums and more people than ever before, have access to electricity. However, ten per cent of our population lives in extreme poverty. This year, the International Day focuses on Acting Together to Empower Children, their Families and Communities to End Poverty. Poverty disproportionately affects children. One out of five children in the world today lives in poverty. I believe that education is the great equalizer, and has the potential to chart a course out of poverty for children. Equal access to quality education equips children to participate fully in society and to navigate a rapidly developing world. If economic growth is to be sustainable, it must be inclusive. Investing in women’s empowerment is a direct investment into the development of societies. Deepening inequalities are detrimental to economic growth and social cohesion. We have, through Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, agreed on the ambitious Goal of eradicating poverty. We will soon enter into the Decade of Implementation. My role is to mobilize stronger commitment to action to lift people out of poverty. We must mobilise resources to raise the 2.6 trillion required to reduce inequalities to promote conflict prevention and sustain peace. I am confident that by striving together, we will succeed in delivering for all. We should get on with this critically important task. I thank you. --- Background information: In a world characterized by an unprecedented level of economic development, technological means and financial resources, that millions of persons are living in extreme poverty is a moral outrage. Poverty is not solely an economic issue, but rather a multidimensional phenomenon that encompasses a lack of both income and the basic capabilities to live in dignity. Persons living in poverty experience many interrelated and mutually reinforcing deprivations that prevent them from realizing their rights and perpetuate their poverty, including: • dangerous work conditions • unsafe housing • lack of nutritious food • unequal access to justice • lack of political power • limited access to health care This year marks the 27th anniversary of the declaration by the General Assembly, in its resolution 47/196 of 22 December 1992, of 17 October as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. 2019 Theme: Acting Together to Empower Children, their Families and Communities to End Poverty Tijjani Muhammad-Bande (General Assembly President) at the Third Committee, 19th meeting - General Assembly, 74th session http://webtv.un.org/watch/tijjani-muhammad-bande-general-assembly-president-at-the-third-committee-19th-meeting-general-assembly-74th-session/6094966461001 Address by Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, the President of the UN General Assembly, during the 19th meeting of the Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian amp Cultural Committee). video6094966461001 Tue, 15 Oct 2019 14:34:46 +0000 6094966461001 280575 Address by Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, the President of the UN General Assembly, during the 19th meeting of the Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian amp Cultural Committee).

The teaching profession is one of the noblest professions and it has been so for millennia. We’ve all come to agree that no society can develop past its educational system. Within that system, the teacher is at the centre. The quality of the teacher is critical to what is delivered or not delivered in any educational system. In particular, I take this opportunity to congratulate and acknowledge the great work young professionals are doing as teachers. They are the future of the profession. They have taken on a very important task. A teacher, as we all know, is a mentor, is a comforter, is someone who helps with inquiry, is someone who inspires younger persons or even older persons. What is important is that the teacher is always there to do what is right and good for people. Today more than ever before there are opportunities for people to learn faster using different exciting platforms. I urge young professional teachers to use all the technologies available in delivering their lessons, in teachings and also in learning because they must continue to learn. This is the exciting thing about teachers, every teacher is also a learner. That’s what makes the profession, and I am a teacher myself, such an exciting profession. On this World Teachers’ Day 2019, once again I salute all teachers all over the world and in particular young professional teachers.
