The growth of developing countries, especially in Asia, will achieve the goal of halving world poverty by 2015. And ‘as supported by a recent UN report. The criterion that was identified in 2000, was to halve the number of people living on less than a dollar a day, compared to 1990. Breaking down the total figure, large differences appear, in fact in East Asia, the poverty rate should go down below 5% by 2015, India from 51% in 1990 expects 22% in 2015, while more complex situation in sub-Saharan Africa, because of the difficulty of obtaining data, both for objective structural deficiencies that prevent a development similar to that of the Asian Tigers, the data should, however, amount to around 36% for 2015 , which compared to 58% in 1990, represents a substantial improvement. The estimates take into account the slow growth imposed by financial and economic crisis and allow you, In spite of these, to say that the pace of the descent of the poverty rate should not be slowed down. Despite the progress and the statements of the UN, poverty is still far from defeated, the data upon which the UN target is, indeed, a goal no longer suited to the times in which we live. Beyond the humanitarian purpose, the slice of the population cut off from economic processes, precisely because of their lack of resources, constitutes an obstacle to the spread of development, which should not be understood as a mere consumerism, but as an opportunity for growth and usability needs considered primary in the West: how education and training, access to medical care and also a greater spread of wealth, with all the consequences. If the UN can speak with satisfaction to have almost reached their objective in the fight for freedom, on which, however, will need to acquire more new targets, raising the sum of one dollar a day, not so as regards the fight against hunger . On this point there is still 16% of the population that suffers from endemic food shortages due to famine, poor weather conditions, weather and wars. The fight against malnutrition must be fought more enemies and is facing a need for maximum coordination and maximum resource efficiency, which, unfortunately, the rich countries are slow to give. It is therefore essential to the growth of political importance of the UN, as a supranational body capable of action as well as materially, especially politically, providing planning and address necessary to stay ahead of the lack of food.
