[Photo/Xinhua]China has an unmatched record of achievement in poverty reduction over the past three and a half decades – accounting for 72 percent of the global reduction in extreme poverty. Last month, at the United Nations General Assembly, President Xi Jinping reiterated Chinas ambitious targets to further reduce poverty, as 7 percent of the developing worlds poor still live in China today.Chinas success in poverty reduction is the result of a combination of factors, including strong economic growth, attention to antipoverty programs, and improved access to social services and social protection. Establishing a comprehensive social protection system has been key for Chinas successful poverty reduction. The Dibao program, which provides cash to Chinas needy, is the backbone of the system. It is also the largest program of its kind in the world.It is thus no coincidence that this week almost 250 participants from 75 countries are in Beijing to discuss social protection in an urbanizing world and to learn from Chinas success and more about its remaining challenges. The event offers an opportunity to discuss the role of social protection in urban areas – a dynamic and catalytic role that bolsters upward mobility through better access to safety nets, housing and jobs tailored to urban settings.The Urban Dibao program was piloted in 1993 and expanded to all cities in China in 1999. By 2003, the program covered some 22 million urban residents. Workers laid off from State-owned enterprises and the unemployed accounted for over two-fifths of the programs beneficiaries. Studies documented how the Urban Dibao program cushioned the effects of Chinas SOE reforms on workers. Today, the focus of the Urban Dibao program has shifted to the elderly living in poverty, the working poor and low-income families with adult members with low skills, disabled or without a support network.The Rural Dibao program was adopted nationwide in 2007, following years of piloting. The program has been scaled up from 36 million to 52 million beneficiaries between 2007 and today. The governments budget for the Rural Dibao program has increased dramatically, from 4 billion yuan ($629.08 million) in 2007 to 87 billion yuan in 2015, with the central government covering the majority of financing since 2009. This has allowed a five-fold increase in the average transfer amount to families, along with the vast expansion in coverage.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page0Related StoriesPoverty foundation holds donation ceremony in BeijingFighting poverty in the city must be a long-term goal Chinas 2020 poverty alleviation goal attainable: XiTough choices needed to end extreme povertyMeasures to reduce rural poverty a growing successWhat the world can do to get women out of povertyPhoto exhibition traces poverty reduction in Inner MongoliaAIIB plays a big role in regional poverty reliefMost Viewed Todays Top NewsHousing booms may hurt, not heal, local growthTime to break free of protectionist shacklesAllow space for students to discover themselvesPhilippines arbitration case built on false pretextFunding global public goods for worlds recoveryForum TrendsTips to manage stress when studying abroadWhy are Chinese students heading to the US?Should investment lessons be mandatory?How can doctors and patients regain trust?Are women-only buses discriminatory?Do student evaluations measure teaching effectiveness?What annoys you most while traveling in China?ColumnistsTrumps willingness to talk to the DPRK is the right approachFestival drama peels layers of character who isnt thereFeatured ContributorsTurnball highlights China-Australia FTA as a valuable assetBloody curtain rising to greet US first-ever presidentStar BloggersMy best friend in China: 35th anniversary of China Daily By subeChina Daily is like a friend who stays with me in every mood in my life.
