World Poverty is a Disaster. Billions of people around the world live in extreme poverty. Nearly 10 percent of the world's population. That's almost 1 billion people living below the World Bank poverty line of $ per day.

And almost half the world (nearly 4 billion people) lives with a household income below $ a day. Explanation of how poverty for the world without China was calculated: In there were billion people in the world. 42% of these were extremely poor.

Poverty is not having enough material possessions or income for a person's needs. Poverty may include social, economic, and political elements. Absolute poverty is the complete lack of the means necessary to meet basic personal needs, such as food, clothing, and shelter.

The threshold at which absolute poverty is defined is always about the same, independent of the. The definition of poverty, which is conventionally measured by income, is associated with Charles Booth, who came up with the concept of the poverty line in his important survey The Life and Labor of the People in London, which was carried out between and The poverty line reflects any calculations about the money required for subsistence living, including housing.

Poverty is a global issue. All the countries around the world face the problem of poverty, but there are some countries which are poorer than others like the developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. There is no one size fits all definition of the concept of poverty.

The world bank describes poverty as: “Poverty is hunger. Poverty is lack of y is being sick and not being able to see adoctor. Poverty is not having access to schooland not knowing how to read. Poverty is nothaving a job, is fear for the future, living oneday at a time.” 4. Poverty is when you have either no money or you don’t have enough money to support yourself or your family.

Poverty has been associated, for example, with poor health, low levels of education or skills, an inability or an unwillingness to work, high rates of disruptive or disorderly behaviour, and improvidence.
