The statement -
Poverty is increasingly seen as a technical problem amenable to intervention. — Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind (book name)
I found this on vocabulary.com as an example on how to use the word amenable. I believe the word "amenable" means to be compliant to something or willing to agree. In the above statement I'm not able to understand how "amenable" is used. Also I'm just not able to make any sense out of the whole statement. Can someone please explain that statement in layman's terms. Make me understand that line please.
