The composition and levels of wealth per capita for low-income countries
Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
In low-income countries, the natural section represents a quarter of the total wealth, this represents the land that is managed either by household, individual or communally, and the potential for generating income. Physical capital, represents a much smaller share as people will have less potential, compared to higher income countries, to acquire equipment, structures and infrastructure.
