Extreme poverty, i.e. people living with less than $1.90 a day, has tremendously declined in 25 years – from 36% of the World’s population in 1990 to 10% in 2015. However, since 2013 the rate of decline has slowed and more and more of the extreme poverty is concentrating in specific regions. Such a region is the Sub-Saharan Africa, where forecasts indicate that by 2030 nearly 9 in 10 of the extreme poor will live in.
