More than 700 million people, or 11% of the worlds population, still live in extreme poverty, struggling to meet the most basic needs such as health, education, access to water and sanitation, to name a few. In 2017, economic losses attributed to natural disasters were estimated at more than $300 billion, one of the highest losses in recent years. However, this issue also affects developed countries. Currently, 30 million poor children are growing up in the worlds richest countries. Poverty has many dimensions, but its causes include unemployment, social exclusion and the high vulnerability of certain populations to disasters, diseases and other phenomena that prevent them from being productive. To analyse the poverty line after the independence of India. the Indian government and NGOs have launched several programs to alleviate poverty, including subsidizing food and other necessities, improving access to credit, improving agricultural techniques and price support, supporting education and family planning. These measures have helped eliminate famines, reduce absolute poverty levels by more than half, and reduce illiteracy and malnutrition.
