Abstract
Global poverty reduction has become an important issue nowadays, where according to United Nations, 836 Million people still live in extreme poverty. Poverty is acknowledged to be a major contributor to hunger and malnutrition, lack of health and education, increasing crime, diminishing socio-economic condition and a barrier for sustainable development. Inline with the Post 2015 Development Agenda of the United Nations (2015) of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the discussion of poverty has today become prominent espescially in developing countries where a vast majority of world's poor people are living. This paper reviews some of some articles which discuss poverty and sustainable development of developing countries. The main aim of this paper is to provide an overview of research which has explored poverty in the context of the effectiveness of the attempts to promote sustainable development in developing countries. In Indonesia, as one of many developing country, the paper shows that the measurement of poverty in Indonesia has become important in order to not only to measure the actual level of poverty throughout the country annually in an objective way, but also to asses the cause of poverty itself. The related design of a realistic strategy of poverty reduction in Indonesia should be based on an integrative management approach which seeks to provide a combination of different services at the community level.
