We've reviewed and analyzed the G8 Communique from Day 1 of the Summit, and here's our take.
As governments from across the world gather for a major international conference in Doha, Qatar, this weekend, international agency Oxfam is calling on rich countries not to water down their aid commitments.
Ahead of a crucial meeting this Friday in Brussels to decide the fate of the proposed EU food crisis package, leading anti-poverty campaigners expressed their concern that no new resources will be used to address the situation of rising levels of hunger in the world.
The urgency shown by rich countries to tackle the financial meltdown stands in stark contrast to their foot-dragging and broken promises over aid and poverty alleviation, human rights and climate change.
Global commitments to reduce poverty and improve lives cannot be reached unless the international community makes urgent progress towards controlling the arms trade, according to a new Oxfam report.
