13:07 Peru to create second-generation social programs
Lima, Nov. 04 (ANDINA). The Peruvian government wants to implement second-generation social programs through the new Ministry of Social Inclusion and Development (Midis), noted Peruvian President Ollanta Humala.

In this way, the government wants to overcome curent problems as a result of deficiencies in the coordination of social programs, and leave behind the assistance schemes for more productive ones, Humala said.

“We want to transform the social programs into a State social policy,” said late Thursday the Peruvian leader after participating in the launching ceremony of the 2011 Global Human Development Report - "Sustainability and Equity: A Better Future for All", presented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

President Humala went on to say that the main purpose is to target every person benefited from social policies and make them take part of the programs for a short time and rescue them from poverty. Then, other people can also benefit from the programs.

The 2011 Human Development Report argues that the urgent global challenges of sustainability and equity must be addressed together and identifies policies on the national and global level that could spur mutually reinforcing progress towards these interlinked goals.

Said report shows further how the world’s most disadvantaged people suffer the most from environmental degradation, including in their immediate personal environment, and disproportionately lack political power, making it all the harder for the world community to reach agreement on needed global policy changes.
