Springs are an essential water resource in Congo. UNEP estimates that springs account for up to 90% of the total amount of water consumed in the rural areas (2011). In addition, UNEP indicates that there are approximately 1000 boreholes in Congo, which provide water for a small portion of individuals who reside in the rural areas. Similarly, UNEP estimates that Congo has a per capita water figure of 19,967m3 that is well above the internationally acknowledged figure of 1,7000m3 (2011). Nevertheless, the supply of this water into homes in rural and urban areas lags at only 7m3 per capita in every other

Why are people still poor to this day? That is a very broad question but we do know that poverty is still a crucial problem to achieving overall world happiness even in 2018. Poverty has been around for millennia but it 's even more of a problem now in 2018. This is because it is becoming more extreme. For example, in Afghanistan 36% of the population, lives in absolute, extreme poverty and 37% lives just above the determined poverty line.
This means that 1.4 billion people or 21% of the world 's population live in extreme poverty. Unfortunately, women and children account for a sizeable portion of those who live in poverty. It is my opinion and belief that education can break barriers in order to escape or come out of poverty, but on the other hand poverty has been seen to cause problems in education as it can also limit student’s true potential. Children coming from a poor background usually look and dress differently from others from an upper class
Childhood poverty is a serious issue across the world. For children, poverty is defined as the deprivation of necessary aspects of life such as, nutrition, health, water, education, or shelter. According to Unicef, 47 percent of those living in extreme poverty are 18 years old or younger which means that nearly 385 million children are living in poverty worldwide (based on data from 89 countries).This is a staggering result as this means that children account for almost half of the world’s extreme poor. According to the World Bank Group and Unicef, the youngest children are the worst off. More than one-fifth of children under the age of five in the developing countries face extreme poverty compared to 15% of 15-17 year old that live in poverty.It is appalling that children, as young as five years old are in danger.
Over the past decade, poverty has been an issue that affects communities but, have we asked ourselves what poverty means? According to World Health Organization approximately 1.2 billion people in the world live in extreme poverty (less than one dollar per day). In fact, the poverty forms in many patterns or disappears behind lots causes; however, it is difficult to restrict the poverty in single definition especially when it associated with the health. On the other hand, poverty is influenced by financial, economic, political and social factors which contribute interchangeably to raise the poverty lines in some countries. Therefore, poverty causes ill-health because it forces some people to live in the worst environments and conditions and
Poverty, undoubtedly, has been a serious issue in many countries in the world and has been an obstacle on their path to rapid and sustainable development. The main reasons for global poverty have been identified as all forms of discrimination, illiteracy, overpopulation and environmental factors such as droughts affecting farmers. It is saddening that 49% of Peru’s population, even today, lives in poverty and 15% of the population lives on less than $1 a day . One of the main reasons for these statistics is the unequal income distribution among the people, with 10% of the population controlling 35.4% of the nation’s wealth. Though there is a respectable literacy rate of 88.7% for students of age 15 and above in the country, the high-school dropout rate is an alarming 49%.
Statistics show that there are over 35 million Americans that live in poverty. That is almost 10% of the whole population. There are many reasons that cause poverty in America. The lack of jobs that are available for people with a low education. People can’t get the education they need because colleges are too expensive.
Research Question: To what extent, the people get affected by poverty? Poverty & Inequality Introduction Poverty is a state or condition in which a person or community lacks the financial resources and essentials to enjoy a minimum standard of life and well-being that 's considered acceptable in society. More 1.3 billion people are affected by poverty, this means the half of the world is affected by poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 die every day due to poverty. Poverty is like a disease which kills many people.
Human being, marine ecosystem, and countries’ economy are the main factors that are affected by water contamination. Drinking polluted water and eating poisoned seafood would cause many health issues, such as cancers and kidney diseases. As a consequence of water pollution, marine life is suffering from oxygen deficiency, and the continuous numbers of deaths are increasing. As a result, the economies of the exporter countries would find reduction in the amounts of the aquatic animals. Also, high costs of water desalinations affect the economy of the countries that are suffering from the polluted
This left many industries across Canada to be short of much-needed labour. The biggest negative impact of the War on Canada was the debt that Canada accumulated. Canada’s debt in 1914 before the war, was $544 000 000 which suddenly rose to almost $2.5 billion after the war in 1919. A massive and unusual effort had support the war overseas and had loaned the Canadian government all of the money it needed to fight the war. The resulting debt of more than $2 billion would fundamentally change the nature of our post-war economy.
Philippines and Canada are two different economic spectrum. The former has historically struggled with poverty from the period of colonization to today’s rapid globalization with poverty incidence of 21.6% as of 2014 (PSA, 2016). Canada, on the other hand, has 9.7% rate of low income but majority of those are transitory. From 2005-2010, only 1.5% are considered in persistent low income (Statistics Canada, 2015 as cited by Lamman, & McIntyre, 2016). Beyond these numbers, there remains a grim reality that faced citizens within the poverty thresholds from both nations.
Growing Up In Poverty Poverty, or the state of not having enough money to fulfill the basic necessities in life, is a long lasting issue in United States and throughout the world. Because children are dependent on others, they enter or avoid poverty by virtue of their family’s economic circumstances. Children cannot alter family conditions by themselves, at least until they approach adulthood. Data released in September 2011 by the Census Bureau indicate that 16.4 million children in the United States, 22.0 percent of all children, lived in poverty in 2010. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty.
With the cost of living rising at a rate at which a very small amount of people can afford it, the country’s citizens will suffer from poverty. The effects of poverty will be most prominent in developing countries at first, but as those countries are unable to sustain the demands of other countries such as Canada, those other countries will also suffer. The depletion of cheap oil will lead to poverty in many countries that rely on oil to power their economies, unless another cheap energy dense resource is discovered. Canadians will be heavily affected by the poverty found in our supplier’s countries, through the increase of our cost of
