Be Global"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. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality." (United Nations, n.d.)

Map of extreme child poverty rates by country

Move your mouse over the map to see the statistics for extreme child poverty in different parts of the world. "Extreme poverty, measured at $1.90 per person per day, disproportionately affects children – 387 million, or 19.5% of the world’s children live in extreme poverty compared to just 9.2% of adults. Children represent half of the poor yet are just one third of the underlying population." (UNICEF, 2018)

Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI)

Move your mouse over the graph to see the percentage of children living in poverty in different parts of the world.

Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) "Multi-dimensional poverty in high-income countries is often measured using indicators of material deprivation: whether children have toys, safe places to play and go on holidays, for example. In the European Union, there are both general- and child-specific measures of material deprivation. The overall picture of material deprivation in the EU again shows that children are over-represented and are bearing the brunt of poverty." (UNICEF, 2018)
