Estrategia Nacional para la Igualdad y la Erradicación de la Pobreza
The National Strategy for Equality and Poverty Eradication (ENIEP) is an interdependent set of policies, guidelines, programs and mechanisms that guide the governance around the historic decision to eliminate poverty in Ecuador. It is based on the understanding of poverty’s causes, in order to provide sustainable solutions to the problems of inequality and social exclusion beyond compensatory social policy responses.
The ENIEP conceives poverty as a multidimensional phenomenon, which expresses a lack of aggregate opportunities, anomalies, deficiencies, discrimination, unacceptable violations, exclusive cultural patterns and unjust deprivation of rights that block the deployment of “Buen Vivir (Good Living)”. From a comprehensive perspective, the process of poverty eradication is valued from a multi sectoral approach that is enriched by the active participation of various public, private and community stakeholders included in the decision-making processes, seeking to generate structural changes to build a just and inclusive society.
For this, the ENIEP promotes inter sectoral and territorial coordination oriented towards diversification, increased productivity, elimination of asymmetries and expanding decent employment opportunities and income, particularly in the poorest population. Inter sectoral actions focus on the progressive elimination of poverty, within rural and urban territories, with emphasis on the population living in extreme poverty, taking advantage of the territorial endogenous potential. This is done through upward social mobility processes, based on three components: access to higher quality goods, productive revolution, labor and employment, and comprehensive protection for the lifecycle.

The ENIEP as an instrument for inter-sectoral coordination of public policy, it constitutes an interdependent set of policies, guidelines and mechanisms that guide the management of the different levels of government around the historic decision to create a social and institutional effort to eradicate poverty in Ecuador. It is a roadmap for the implementation of the National Plan for Good Living 2013- 2017. Its aim is to "eradicate poverty in a sustained and sustainable manner, through productive revolution, labor and employment, the full exercise of the rights of Good Living, capacity building and opportunities, and the strengthening of citizen participation and popular power, to build a just and fraternal society."
