Hillary Clinton promotes 2030 anti-poverty effort

Published: 04.04.14, 01:34 / Israel News

Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday promoted a new campaign that aims to harness science and technology to end extreme global poverty by 2030.


The US Agency for International Development is undertaking the anti-poverty effort with 32 partners from private industry, colleges and universities, philanthropies and non-governmental organizations.


Clinton, a former US first lady who is widely seen as a potential 2016 Democratic presidential contender, said planning for the campaign, the Global Development Lab, started in 2011 when she was secretary of state, adding, "by government terms that is a warp-speed accomplishment." (AP)
