STATE think tank Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) compiled a list of policies and programs that can boost present or future incomes in the country, making poverty reduction possible.

The discussion paper titled "Eradicating Poverty in the Philippines by 2030: An Elusive Goal?" and policy notes titled "Is eradicating poverty in the Philippines by 2030 doable?" both authored by Celia Reyes were published by PIDS on Tuesday, following the announcement earlier this month by the Philippine Statistics Authority that the number of impoverished Filipinos had climbed to 26.14 million in the first half of this year.
