The Final Countdown: Prospects for Ending Extreme Poverty by 2030 The Final Countdown: Prospects for Ending Extreme Poverty by 2030
Between 1990 and 2010, the share of the population of the developing world living in extreme poverty was cut in half. This fulfilled the first and foremost Millennium Development Goal (MDG1a) five years ahead of schedule. Moreover, it would appear to bring the end of extreme poverty within reach. If the same rate of global progress is sustained, extreme poverty will be eliminated in 2030. In other words, if it took 20 years to lift half the world’s poor above the poverty line, a further 20 years should take care of the other half. This has rightfully got people excited. In the words of Bono, “The zero zone...is just around the corner”.
