Given the reality shown by official figures that instead of reducing poverty and social exclusion the number has increased by almost 4 million; given that our members, from their work on the ground, know that the reality is far harsher than this figure reflects, EAPN believes that the Commission’s proposal is the minimum that could be expected to address this reality. The rejection of this proposal by Member States is a clear break with the commitment they made when they agreed the Poverty Reduction Target.
