Resumen: This briefing note presents key findings and analysis from research on what needs to be done to deliver the global target to end extreme poverty by 2030. First, it identifies those countries that cannot afford to end extreme poverty from their own resources by drawing on: new poverty projections, so that the estimates of need are based on the number of people that are expected to still be left in poverty in 2030 after allowing for the impact of economic growth new tax projections, based on International Monetary Fund and World Bank research as to what is economically feasible, given the structures of the economy and the overall level of economic development costings of the three core social sectors that are funded by all countries in the world, including Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, and are recognised to have a profound impact on efforts to end extreme poverty: education, health (including nutrition) and social protection transfers. Second, the paper assesses the impact that OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) donors are having on efforts to end extreme poverty in particular, how much aid they provide and how efficiently they target this to the countries that most need external financial support to end extreme poverty.
