The Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth sets targets on poverty reduction by aiming to lift at least 20 million people out of the risk of poverty.

The EU target will not be reached based on current national targets. These add up to around 12 million people. If spill over effects of strategies focusing on combating child poverty or reducing long-term unemployment are taken into account, this number can be increased by 25%. However, this would still fall short by at least 5 million or 25% of the EU headline target.
