Global Distribution of Poverty

Global Distribution of Poverty [http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/povmap/ ] - The Global Poverty Mapping Project seeks to enhance current understanding of the global distribution of poverty and the geographic and biophysical conditions of where the poor live. Additionally, the project aims to assist policy makers, development agencies, and the poor themselves in designing interventions to reduce poverty.

"...this site does a great job of translating facts into practical information that can be used to summarize, publicize, and perhaps eradicate poverty. Highly recommended." [CHOICE, November 2008, p. 516]
