POVERTY

Working to meet the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals 1 and 9

One in ten people in developing regions are still living with their families on less than the international poverty line of US$1.90 a day, and there are millions more who make little more than this daily amount.

Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making.

783 million people live below the international poverty line of US$1.90 a day

High poverty rates are often found in small, fragile and conflict-affected countries

Timor-Leste is one of the world’s newest and poorest countries. We are partnering with Oxfam and other local organisations to deliver a three-part program: integrated rural development, land inclusive development and humanitarian preparedness and response.

Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality. Social protection systems need to be implemented to help alleviate the suffering of disaster-prone countries and provide support in the face of great economic risks. These systems will help strengthen responses by afflicted populations to unexpected economic losses during disasters and will eventually help to end extreme poverty in the most impoverished areas.

Most people living below the poverty line belong to two regions: Southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa

Up to 42% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa continues to live below the poverty line.
