The 2013 Commemoration of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP) will be held on 17 October at UN Headquarters, focusing on the theme "Working together towards a world without discrimination: Building on the experience and knowledge of people in extreme poverty".

This year┐s event is organized in partnership with the International Movement ATD Fourth World, the NGO Sub-committee for the Eradication of Poverty and UN DESA, supported by the Missions of France and Burkina Faso to the United Nations.

In addition to the Commemoration in New York, celebrations of the Day are being organized worldwide. Through resolution A/RES/47/196 adopted on 22 December 1992, the General Assembly invited all States to devote the Day to presenting and promoting concrete activities with regard to the eradication of poverty and destitution.
