Poverty Alleviation and G-8

News: "Jeffrey Sachs: 'Don't let the G8 leaders leave Scotland without a serious plan for ending poverty'

20 June 2005
Jeffrey Sachs has a simple message for the people of Britain. 'Don't let the leaders [of the G8 countries] leave Scotland without offering serious plans for ending poverty and climate change. They are not going to Gleneagles for a game, or for a little vacation, not for photo-ops, not for smiles. They are there to set us on a real path to ending extreme poverty. Give them a serious warning - don't leave here without doing your work. Don't leave here without putting in place solutions to these problems.'
