Poverty

Poverty is characterised by an accumulation of interconnected forms of inequality and exclusion in areas such as education, employment, housing, health or participation, which stucks people in a vicious circle and hampers on their means to improve their situation. In cities, poverty is often spatially concentrated in specific neighborhoods and districts. Vertical, but also horizontal cooperation and coordination, - with businesses, civil society and active citizens, is indispensable to tackle poverty and its trickle-down effects.
