9.2% of the world, or 689 million people, live in conditions of extreme poverty.
1.3 billion people in 107 developing countries live in a situation of multidimensional poverty.
How poverty is classified
EXTREME Poverty - means those people who live on $ 1.90 (€ 1.60) or less per day.
ABSOLUTE poverty - when a person cannot afford the minimum needs for nutrition, clothing or shelter.
RELATIVE poverty - a household income that is 50% or 60% lower than the average income of that country.
MULTIDIMENSIONAL poverty - families have no electricity, no drinking water and no one in the family has completed six years of school; poverty is not always a question of income.
