Combating Poverty With Development Economics A Global Perspective

Combating Poverty with Development Economics: A Global Perspective

Poverty is one of the biggest social problems worldwide. The number of people living below the poverty line set by the United Nations is 736 million as of 2021. Fighting poverty is not only a humanitarian task, but also of vital importance for the development economy. In this article, an overview of development economics and the fight against poverty will be provided and developments at the global level will be examined.

What is Development Economics?

Development economics is a discipline concerned with the study of economic policies and practices necessary for a country’s economic growth, social development and sustainable development. This discipline focuses on the study of economic, social and political problems, especially in underdeveloped or developing countries. Development economics focuses on issues such as economic growth, income distribution, poverty, health, education and environmental sustainability to ensure the development of a country.

Development economics conducts research on how policies can be developed for the development of these countries, especially by examining the economic developments in low-income countries. These policies often cover topics such as economic liberalism, government intervention, and social welfare policies. Development economics promotes a country’s economic growth while also considering social and environmental sustainability.

Development economics directs economic growth not only as a goal, but also in a way that contributes to the improvement of people’s quality of life. Development economics aims at economic development as well as social development. For this reason, it also works on the issues of development economics, fighting against poverty, unemployment, unfair income distribution and other social problems.

What is Poverty?

Poverty is one of the biggest social problems worldwide and has not only individual but also societal and economic consequences. Poverty can also be defined in different ways in many countries. However, it is generally considered as not having enough income to meet one’s basic needs. This means that poverty must be addressed not only in terms of income, but also in terms of meeting basic needs such as health, education, housing, food, water and clean air.

Poverty also has economic effects. For example, poor people being unproductive can increase unemployment rates and limit the potential for economic growth. Poverty is also an indicator of economic inequality and can trigger social unrest. In addition, while tackling poverty, various causes of poverty, such as political, economic, social and cultural factors, need to be addressed.

Poverty rates around the world vary between different countries, but are more common especially in underdeveloped and developing countries. In addition, poverty rates are generally higher in rural areas. Poverty is an important obstacle to the development of both individuals and societies. Therefore, tackling poverty has a critical importance in terms of ensuring economic and social development.

Fighting poverty is not just about implementing economic policies. In the fight against poverty, many different issues such as social policies, education, health services, clean water and sanitation, shelter, food security need to be addressed. In addition, the participation of all segments of the society is also important in the fight against poverty. It is necessary for all segments of society to work together to understand the causes of poverty and produce solutions.

The Role of Development Economics in Combating Poverty

Development economics plays an important role in the fight against poverty. Development economics helps determine the policies necessary for a country to achieve economic growth and social development. These policies should be designed to be effective in combating poverty. Development economics can help fight poverty by:

a) Economic growth: Economic growth provides job opportunities and income growth. This is an effective method in the fight against poverty.

b) Development of social services: The development of education, health and social services plays an important role in the fight against poverty. Making these services accessible to all can improve the living conditions of individuals below the poverty line.

c) Making income distribution fair: A fair income distribution is an important factor in the fight against poverty. Income inequality is one of the main causes of poverty. Therefore, making the income distribution fair can be an effective method in the fight against poverty.

d) Struggling with the causes of poverty: Among the causes of poverty are factors such as unemployment, low education level, and unhealthy living conditions. The development economy can contribute to the fight against poverty by tackling these reasons.

e) International cooperation: Fighting poverty is not just a country’s problem. Therefore, international cooperation and assistance is an important factor in the fight against poverty. The development economy can contribute to the fight against poverty through international cooperation and cooperation.

There is a close relationship between the development economy and the fight against poverty. Development economics can help identify and implement effective policies to combat poverty. Economic growth, improving social services, making income distribution fair, fighting the causes of poverty and international cooperation are among the basic strategies of development economics in the fight against poverty. The success of these strategies will be an important step towards tackling poverty around the world.
