OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION
MORE ABOUT POVERTY REDUCTION
The UNDP Poverty Reduction Cluster supports the Government of Malaysia in addressing the challenge of growing inequality as the progress in poverty reduction has been uneven across the country. Although Malaysia has come close to ending extreme poverty, there are pockets of hard-core rural poverty remaining, especially among the indigenous communities of Sabah and Sarawak. Local problems need local solutions, and UNDP bridges the gap between Government, NGOs, donors, and most importantly local communities to put programs and resources where they are needed most.
