Half Of The World’s Poor Live In Just 5 Countries
The 5 countries with the largest numbers of extreme poor people are: India, Nigeria, Democratic Rep. of Congo, Ethiopia, Bangladesh. These countries are also the most populous countries in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. To reduce extreme poverty, large reductions in poverty will be needed in these 5 countries.
Extreme poverty in India and Bangladesh is projected to be reduced to near zero by 2030. However, extreme poverty in Nigeria, Congo, and Ethiopia is still expected to be very high in 2030. In addition, the report emphasizes that we need to work toward eliminating extreme poverty worldwide.
