In a report launched in March 2009, Dóchas, the Irish Association of Non-Governmental Development Organisations, demonstrates how poor countries’ ability to respond to the global crisis is steadily being eroded. The report, entitled “Now is not the time to turn our backs on the poor”, highlights the dramatic impact of the global economic crisis on the world’s poorest people.
