According to information from our special correspondent, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and the United Nations (UN), there are 1.3 billion poor people, making up about 23 percent of the total world population. It is remarkable that half of the world’s poor population consists of people under the age of 18 and one third of them under 10.

World Day Against Poverty

UN, “October 17 World Poverty Alleviation Day” organized by various activities to raise awareness of the international public on this issue is working.

While the rate of poverty reduction in the world has slowed down in recent years, African countries with wars and crises such as famine are leading the poverty.

The poorest country Liberia

Liberia, which ranks first in the list of the poorest countries, has an annual income of $ 710 per capita. Central African Republic ($ 730), Burundi ($ 770), Democratic Republic of the Congo ($ 870), Niger ($ 990), Malawi ($ 180), Mozambique ($ 200), Sierra Leone ($ 480) dollars), Madagascar (thousand 510 dollars) and Comoros (thousand 570 dollars).

Imbalance between income

In the Gini coefficient, which measures the imbalance between incomes, the Central African Republic shows 42.1 percent according to the most recent measurements in 2012, while the Gini index of South Sudan is 46 percent (2010) and 42.4 percent (Burundi) (1998), Malawi. 46.1 percent (2010), Yemen’s 37.9 percent (2009), Democratic Republic of the Congo 42.1 percent (2012), Mozambique 45.6 percent (2008) and Madagascar 41 (2012).

According to the World Bank’s report titled Bit Ending Global Poverty published last year by the World Bank, which works to end poverty completely by 2030, the global extreme poverty rate decreased from 11 percent to 10 percent in 2015.

On the other hand, more than 820 million people, i.e. one in 9, are struggling with hunger in the world, where the number of malnourished people is on the rise.
