Poverty by country, share of population living under USD 2 per day, 2004

Year: 2006 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
In the world today, some 2.6 billion people live on less than USD 2 per day, and out of those - three quarters of them in rural areas. The number of poor is decreasing in the World though, and most rapidly in Asia, while Sub-Saharan Africa remains the main area of concern. The goal, of the International community, is to half extreme poverty by 2015 - as specified in the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
