Does the national social inclusion policy achieve its targets on poverty reduction?

For many years, poverty reduction and income inequality have been one of the challenges for the United Nations, the European Union, and Latvia.Latvia has already confirmed its commitment to tackling poverty and social exclusion in 2002 in preparation for joining the European Union. Although Latvia has prepared many different documents since 2002 by prioritising the reduction of poverty and income inequality both in the top hierarchical documents of the country and in substantiating almost every activity that we are going to implement and that requires additional funding, there is no reason to consider that one tackles those social problems effectively.
