Which countries is Australia more obligated to help? Why? Where should most of our aid go?

It's amazing how much reduction India has had! But it's sad that Nigeria will be getting a bigger population of poverty..

This article really open up my mind about poverty. Ms Sturgeon deputy prime minister, set out the vision of how independence would allow the building of ‘a country where child poverty belongs in the past. However this, risked making the problem worse and pushing more than 50,000 children into child poverty by 2020. If Scotland is independent they can take decisions about welfare that will ensure fair and decent support for people. However they can be hindered because of  lack of fiscal powers, but also by the disjoint between what is funded at the UK level by DWP their employability services

Percentage of Population Living in Poverty

Percentage of Population Living in Poverty | Poverty | Scoop.it

This interactive map shows national estimates of the percentage of the population falling below the poverty line.  That is a quite problematic situation to map, since the operational definitions of poverty vary considerably among countries.  Also, there are some counties without data (Central Africa, North Korea, etc.)  However, there is still considerable value to be gleaned from this map.  What regional patterns do you notice?  How will this map inform our understanding of migration patterns and political unrest?

Ishwer Singh's curator insight, January 20, 2014 7:26 AM

This map show that most countries in Africa and south America are suffering from poverty. The country suffering from the highest amount of poverty is Chad. it has 80% of its people in poverty and countries around Chad also experience high amounts of poverty. Many articles state that the government there is corrupted. i too believe that the government is corrupted. i hope that the government helps the people and not themselves. People are dying every minute in areas like this due to famine. there are many children who are left to fend for themselves and are abandoned at the very young age as their families couldnt afford to fill another mouth. i believe all this can end if the government does something for the people. 

Edelin Espino's curator insight, December 5, 2014 11:10 AM

I hope the economy get better in the next decades, specially in Latin America. We need more young people we money to spend there. That will open more opportunities for business all over the world.

Barbara De Angelis is without any doubts one of the most influential teachers of our time in the field of relationships and personal growth.

 

Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.

 

Love is a choice you make from moment to moment.

 

You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.

Is It Crazy to Think We Can Eradicate Poverty?

Is It Crazy to Think We Can Eradicate Poverty? | Poverty | Scoop.it
The end to extreme poverty might very well be within reach. But is the bar too low?

 

The World Bank aims to raise just about everyone on Earth above the $1.25-a-day income threshold. In Zambia, an average person living in such dire poverty might be able to afford, on a given day, two or three plates of cornmeal porridge, a tomato, a mango, a spoonful each of oil and sugar, a bit of chicken or fish, maybe a handful of nuts. But he would have just pocket change to spend on transportation, housing, education and everything else.

I agree with Sarah. While many people think that poverty can be eradicated, the world's economy simply cannot hold up every single country. Even if it was able to, countries would probably get into debt and end up poorer than before.
Hannah Campbell's curator insight, July 20, 2013 10:29 PM

I do not think it is crazy to think we can eridacte poverty, but the world's richest and most developed countries need to support the developing countries. 

JH Tan's curator insight, January 19, 2014 7:52 AM

It is extremely hard to eradicate poverty in the world as most people in the world is still living below the $1.25 a day income.However, if  gorverments from developed countries are willing to support the developing countries,I believe we will be able to hit the target set by the world bank to raise just about everyone on earth above the $1.25 a day income.
