Extreme poverty has continued its decline

2030 target: 3 percent

Extreme poverty has fallen in many countries, and a lower proportion of people worldwide live in extreme poverty (graph). According to the most recent estimates, in 2015, 10 percent of the world's population or 734 million people lived on less than $1.90 a day, that is down from nearly 36 percent or 1.9 billion people in 1990.  Remarkable improvements in human capital indicators have been observed -- under-5 mortality has fallen to 43 per 1,000 live births in 2017 compared to 56 per live births in 2010, and the ratio of girls to boys lower secondary completion rate is now 101 percent.

However, more needs to be done. Challenges remain in improving the livelihoods of people in FCS and the poorest population in many countries. Emerging challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the expected downturn in global economy, also threaten the progress made over the years and pose a challenge in meeting the 3 percent target of extreme poverty by 2030.
