Author: Jacob Night, Elizala
Abstract: المستخلص باللغة الإنجليزية Poverty poses serious threat to developing countries. As there is no clear-cut definition for poverty and its cause. Failure of international bodies to support policies and programs in sustained manner, efforts of developing countries that are related to people centered sustainable development and to meeting basic needs for all. The study concentrates on descriptive methods, adopts comparable strategy to show similarities between Sudan and the other developing countries which have the same experience. The study uses secondary data which includes collection from different kinds of literature, previous studies, papers, reports and journals as well as primary data collected by interview conducted with urban poor people and some officials in the institutions concerned with the poverty reduction issues. The study has an important conclusion. There are conflicting information on the extend of poverty in the country. Though there is improvement in human development index of the country, government contribution to poverty reduction is of little significance. Though UN agencies and non-governmental organization in collaboration with government contributed much to reduce poverty, from socio-economic perspective, the symptoms of poverty in Sudan remains observable. The study deals with government and the UN organizations strategies in poverty reduction. Government concentrates on social funds such as Zakat, social insurance fund, of which productive families program is an example, but it has constraints such as people involved are illiterate. This led to failure of the program. UN organizations programs such as ADS though has some successes; poverty is still on the increase as sustainability of the program is a problem due to weak credit and financial provision. The study recommends that for effective poverty alleviation programs, development plans should be sustainable. Human population quality should be improved through provision of basic entitlements and capacity building. Adopt economic policies that would improve the efficiency of the traditional sector rather than replacing it. Government and UN agencies that indulge in poverty reduction programs should ensure smooth running of credit or finance and co-ordination between the different parties involved in the process
