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

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.
