Meeting the Global Challenge to Eliminate Poverty

Un programme d'action en 10 points

1

Promote and accelerate the implementation of commitments for sustainable development made at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.

2


Make human rights central to the practice of Canadian foreign policy, and in particular seek Canadian and multilateral trade and investment practices that protect internationally agreed labour rights.

3


Build a more equitable global economic order by pursuing trade and investment agreements and regulation of financial flows that contribute to reduced social inequalities and protection of the environment, by cancelling unsustainable debt for the highly indebted poorest countries, and by ensuring democratic reform of multilateral trade and financial institutions such as the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

4


Ensure NGOs and government fulfill gender equity commitments made at recent global United Nations conferences, with particular emphasis on promoting women's human rights, addressing the feminization of poverty, improving women's participation in decision-making, ensuring women's health, and eradicating violence against women.

5


Fulfill Canada's obligations to improve the lives of children, with measurable progress towards the targets for reducing malnutrition, preventable diseases, and illiteracy set out in the 1990 World Declaration and Plan of Action on the Survival, Protection and Development of Children and on the standards for children's rights in the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

6


Make the world safer for all people by collaborating with all sectors of society to foster locally-rooted peace building efforts for war-torn and war-threatened societies and to make common security and peacekeeping core objectives for Canadian defense policy.

7


Promote sustainable food security as a basic human right in Canadian agricultural and international development policy and work to achieve at a minimum the 1996 World Food Summit's seven-point Action Plan.

8


Promote corporate social and environmental responsibility and accountability while seeking a more socially and ecologically balanced way of life among Canadians.

9


Reverse the decline in Canadian foreign aid, with a demonstrated improvement in poverty eradication through Canadian development cooperation over the next five years.
