ALADE, Ibiwumi A.


Humans at the centre of living environment cannot make the environment likeable and livable without a dynamic and vibrant economic aura. Despite various articulated poverty reduction policy initiatives, the menace of poverty on human life remains unabated. Meanwhile, declarations at different levels around the globe have recognized education as a major tool to act on worlds problems. It is also seen that there is a link between education vis-à-vis its curriculum and development. On this background, the paper focused on curriculum for poverty alleviation, economic growth and sustainable development. The introduction provides explanation to poverty as it traumatizes the poor in developing countries before the concepts of curriculum, green economy and sustainable development were clarified. The poor, severity of poverty, causes of poverty and its effects on developing countries are later appraised. Thereafter a call for a virile and dynamic curriculum with its attendant strategies is made to alleviate poverty in the society. Among the recommendations put forward include the need for curriculum enrichment through a tripartite approach, economic empowerment strategies through informal and non-formal curriculum, and the application of Curriculum Schema Indicators for Poverty Alleviation (CSIPA)
