273 million Indians out of poverty in 10 years
NEW DELHI: India had the biggest reduction in the number of multidimensionally poor people estimated at over 270 million during the 2005-15 period, a new UN report has said.
The data, released by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI), showed that 65 of the 75 countries studied significantly reduced their multidimensional poverty levels between 2000 and 2019.
Four countries—Armenia (2010–2015/2016), India (2005/2006–2015/2016), Nicaragua (2001–2011/2012) and North Macedonia (2005/2006–2011) halved their global MPIT value and did so in 5.5–10.5 years. These countries show what is possible for countries with very different initial poverty levels. They account for roughly a fifth of the world’s population, mostly because of India, the report said. The multidimensional index is a measure that looks beyond income to include access to safe water, education, ricity, food and six other indicators.
亚美尼亚(2010-2015/2016)、印度(2005/2006 - 2015/2016)、尼加拉瓜(2001-2011/2012)和北马其顿(2005 /2006 - 2011)四个国家的多维贫困指数在5.5-10.5年内减半。这表明了最初贫困程度截然不同的国家所能实现的目标。报告称，这些国家的人口约占世界人口的五分之一，主要是因为印度人口。多维贫困指数指数不止包含收入指标，包括安全饮用水、教育、电力、食品以及其他6项指标。
But the impact of Covid-19 may slow down efforts to reduce multidimensional poverty. The Covid-19 pandemic unfolded in the midst of this analysis. While data are not yet available to measure the rise of global poverty after the pandemic, simulations based on different scenarios suggest that, if unaddressed, progress across 70 develo countries could be set back by 3–10 years, the report said.
Among the 1.3 billion people still living in multidimensional poverty today, more than 80 per cent are deprived in at least five of the ten indicators used to measure health, education and living standards in the global MPI. The data also reveals that the burden of multidimensional poverty disproportionately falls on children. Half of the 1.3 billion poor have not yet turned 18. While 107 million are 60 or older, the report said.
Children show higher rates of multidimensional poverty: half of multidimensionally poor people (644 million) are children under age 18. One in three children is poor compared with one in six adults, the report said.
“Covid-19 is the latest crisis to hit the globe, and climate change all but guarantees more will follow soon. Each will affect the poor in multiple ways. More than ever, we need to work on tackling poverty – and vulnerability to poverty - in all its forms. This is why the Multidimensional Poverty Index is so important” said Pedro Conçeicão, Director of the Human Development Report Office at UNDP.
Wow Modi Ji wow... If Modi is there anything is possible...
I know you came to power in 2014... but take credit....
you hit the nail on the head. that is what this govt has been doing all along. take credit for all that is good delivered by earlier govts and blaming others for its own failures and mismanagement. My sincere apologies again,
hahaha. typical bhakt. this was between 2005 and 2015 when UPA was ruling the country.
Read your newspapers
during Congress rule, poverty reduction was by reducing base line from Rs 100 to Rs 28. It was in every Indian news paper.
This news is misleading. It was all over in media that Sonia/MMS go nment has reduced the poverty line from Rs100 a day to Rs50, first and then Rs28. Now Meccavir s and Congipipas will come yel. The real poverty reduction is between 2014 to 2017.
Dear HSF Australia, I like Mr. Modi, because he is sure to take whole of the India below poverty line. I hate India, therefore, I love Mr. Modi. I shall go on voting for Modi so that he has enough time to destroy India.
although 8 of the 10 years fall in the UPA re gie.
But how many entered fresh due to lock down from March to present day may be a few tens of crores which will make the number double of what is cmed as came out of poverty. Poverty had doubled if not tripled due to Covid 29 lockdown
Dear Kinnu, world has to face only one Corona vir s, whereas, we in India have two ,namely Covid Modi 2014, and Covid 2019. India is helpless due to these vir ses. India is now Zero.
India's GDP would have been 5 times stronger than that of , if Go nment of India, since the period of Independence had been able to ruthlessly punish ( like ) Corrupt Po iticians & Corrupt Govt Offi als . But Govt of India miserably failed .
Mr. Power, Modi is providing free ration and free health cover to 80 crore Indians, most of whom are Hindus of UP, Bihar etc.
A great news..We must appreciate the govt's initiative in this regard..
Modi ji promised ration to 80 crore (800 million) poor in India per his own on June 30, 2020. So from 2015 to 2020, the number of poor increased from 30 crores to 80 crores. Per UN, number of poors reduced by 27 crore from 2005-15. Per Modi's , number of poors increased by 50 crores from 2015 to 2020.
The figure of poor would have more than doubled in last 4 months, this report comes as a pacifier for hard and bitter truth.
Ground realities exposes, unemployment rate is high .Migrant laborer crisis has exposed real face of India
PAID NEWS FROM BJP
COVID-19 will be used as a Big Excuse by the govt. Indian economy tanked even before.
Modi is himself a corona vir s.
