With the second federal plan to fight against poverty, the federal government is committed more than ever to address the problem of poverty. The fight against poverty is a common thread in the government agreement, not only through concrete actions stated in this plan, but also ensuring that the difference between the current income replacement and labor income does not decrease. Work is the best solution against poverty.

This plan against poverty is a basic tool in the fight against poverty. Political priorities at this level are: the eradication of child poverty, activation as a weapon to break the cycle of poverty, an active policy at the CPAS to counter poverty and fight against social fraud so that resources are allocated to those who really need it. Empowering citizens by giving them the means to break the cycle of poverty is the first principle of the policy against poverty.

Avec le second plan fédéral de lutte contre la pauvreté, le gouvernement fédéral s’engage plus que jamais à traiter le problème de la pauvreté. La lutte contre la pauvreté forme un fil conducteur dans l’accord gouvernemental, non seulement grâce aux actions concrètes reprises dans ce plan, mais aussi en veillant à ce que la différence existant actuellement entre le revenu de remplacement et les revenus du travail ne diminue pas. Le travail reste la meilleure solution contre la pauvreté.

Ce plan de lutte contre la pauvreté est un instrument de base dans la lutte contre la pauvreté. Les priorités politiques à ce niveau sont les suivantes : l’éradication de la pauvreté infantile, l’activation en tant qu’arme pour sortir du cercle de la pauvreté, une politique active au niveau des CPAS afin de contrer préventivement la pauvreté, et la lutte contre la fraude sociale afin que les moyens puissent être alloués à ceux qui en ont vraiment besoin. Rendre les citoyens autonomes en leur donnant les moyens de rompre le cercle de la pauvreté est le premier principe de la politique de lutte contre la pauvreté.
