About 800 million people living in poverty.

85% of them live in rural places affected by environmental crisis.

  • 01. : Four out of five people below the international poverty line lived in rural areas.
  • 02. : Half of the poor are children. Women form a majority of these materially poor in most regions and among some age groups. About 70 percent of the global poor bout 15 years plus and have no hope for schooling or only some basic education
  • 03. : Almost half of poor people in Sub-Saharan Africa live in just five countries: Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Madagascar
  • 04. : More than 40 percent of the global poor live in economies affected by fragility, conflict and violence, and that number is expected to rise to 67 percent in the next decade. Those economies have 10 percent of the world’s population.
  • 05. : About 132 million of the global poor live in areas with high flood risk.
  • 06. : Many people who had barely escaped extreme poverty could be forced back into it by the convergence of COVID-19, conflict, and climate change.
