The Forum aims to achieve two major objectives: to send a strong message on the importance of a continued, enhanced commitment to poverty eradication in the run-up to 2015; second, to provide an opportunity for dialogue among stakeholders on the next steps towards the realization of the universal goal of poverty eradication.
