Our society is developing and all the nations are becoming stronger and economically steady but amongst them there are several countries where people are poor of even the basic facilities of the life such as shelter, education and health. These are the countries which need the attention of the developed countries.
The measure of poverty or wealth of a country is depending upon the countries total GDP. Here is the list of the top 5 poorest country in the world.
Despite being rich in mineral resources such as Diamond, gold and Silver, the republic of Congo is the poorest country in the world. Although Congo has seventy percentages of all the minerals of the world, then also people are still rundown of jobs. A proper resource management system is the most important constraint to overcome this problem.
The main causes of poverty in Zimbabwe are the civil wars that have raged in this country frequently. Currently a major part of the infrastructure is destroyed hence damaging the means of earning.
Another causative factor to this poverty is the short average life expectancy of the people which is 35 years because of death by AIDS and HIV.
Liberia, like Zimbabwe, has been plagued by internal wars and corruption, due to which it has ended up in this list. The poverty has gone to such an extent that 80% of the population lives below $1 per day.
Nigeria has the most gender intolerance issues and political instabilities due to which the country’s economy has taken many sever blows. Additionally, the landscape of this country consists of hot sandy dunes which have no hope of cultivation.
The major contributing factor to Burundi’s poverty is the lack of clean drinking water which has overwhelmed the nation with diseases like AIDS and HIV. This, aided by the land locking in this region, has made Burundi the 5th poorest country in the world.
