The major reason for inequality to rise is the extreme polarisation of wealth in developing countries where the rich keep getting richer while the poor remain where they are and even decline in their economic growth. Policies in countries which make less provision of basic services to the poor in rural regions make the poor have less access to such basic necessities and this makes them marginalised due to more probability of unhygienic conditions of living. Lack of policies considering women to be equivalent to men in opportunities, lack of proper provision of the policy implementation and of welfare schemes, administrative loopholes due to corruption, etc. are reasons for rising inequality.
Inequality can be fought and reduced by making a large implementation of identified policies and strict monitoring of its application. The local factors that are important are to be taken into consideration as the results gained through broader perspectives need to be aligned with those are intrinsic and local level to attain a more reliable result of poverty and inequality reduction.
MDG are designed considering important elements of human development in all countries and to eradicate the hurdles that are to be eliminated. The major problem for the quantification and reaching evidence of the attainment of MDG goals lies in the various hidden but impactful factors that are equally responsible to be eliminated so as to have a clear and distinct view of the results. Inequality and poverty are linked together and rises from one-side policies and lack of a political will to eliminate poverty through effective government measures. Inequality will have to be fought with collaborative practices, identification of actual hurdles and right implementation of its eradication measures.
