His Royal Majesty Ogiame Atuwatse III, the Olu of Warri Kingdom in Delta State would take his fight against poverty to global stage as he lend his voice against the scourge at the annual Concordia Summit in New York, United States.
The event is a round table discussion on the theme; “From Poverty to Empowerment: Raising the Bar on Sustainable and Inclusive Growth”.
In the next three days, the monarch will join other array of attendees from a multitude of sectors and geographies to spark dialogue, promote collaboration, and collectively pave the path toward a more equitable and sustainable future.
Ogiame Atuwatse III, since his coronation as the 21st Olu of Warri, has been spoken on the need to tackle poverty across the world.
Worried by the scourge, he has initiated various programs and also partnered with different countries and bodies to alleviate poverty in his kingdom.
The Concordia Summit organisers expressed worry that in spite of the
fact that large populations in every country were above extreme and national poverty lines, they were still faced with economic insecurity and some level of deprivation.
According to them, “The next generation needs a new way of thinking about inclusion that starts with everyone having their full range of essential needs met.
“Can the world move toward a higher benchmark and erase poverty more decisively and do so while simultaneously taking action to get on a net-zero pathway?”
Concordia is the leading public-private sector forum alongside the UN General Assembly (UNGA).
Its annual summit upholds a remarkable legacy of uniting heads of state, policymakers, business executives, NGO leaders, entrepreneurs, and activists for over a decade.
The summit is the largest and most inclusive nonpartisan forum alongside the UN General Assembly.
This year’s gathering will establish market-led solutions to the greatest challenges of today.
