A Gender Analysis of the Czech Republic Developmental Aid, by Kristina Kosatíková, IGPN, produced by The Network of East-West Women – Poland, Gdansk, 2008. In the area of foreign aid the aim of the Czech Republic is in line with efforts of international community to reduce poverty in the less developed parts of the world. Poverty is recognized as being the greatest obstacle to the sustainable social and economic development. So, the Czech Republic adopts a multi-dimensional approach to the reduction of poverty, that is, accepting that poverty can not be understood just in terms of economy as being simply low level of income per head of population but also taking into account other social and environmental factors. Hence, the Czech Republic fully supports the so-called international development targets - Millennium Development Goals - MDGs - adopted at several UN international conferences in the 1990s and confirmed by the 2000 UN Millennium Summit
