Nigeria in The Poorest Countries in the World
Nigeria

The level of the economy in various countries around the world is not the same , somewhere it is very high and somewhere very low. GDP, literacy rate and employment are the main parameters to determine the level of a country's economy. According to the report of the United Nations, hunger causes the death of about 25,000 people daily. Unfortunately, more children die than adults. 982 million of the 4.8 billion people in the developing world live on $ 1 a day. Another 2.5 billion people live on less than $ 2 per day. What factors influence the level of the economy? These are the geography of the country, industrialization, colonialism, education, natural resources, infrastructure, overcrowding, investment, government debts.

 

Here is a list of the most-most of the world's poorest countries:

There are 9 in Asia:

Afghanistan

Bangladesh

Butane

East Timor

Yemen

Cambodia

Laos

Myanmar

Nepal

 

In Africa 33:

Angola

Burkina Faso

Mali

Burundi

Benin

Chad

Sudan

CAR

Democratic Republic of Congo

Ethiopia

Niger

Djibouti

Comoros

Somalia

Equatorial Guinea

Togo

Tanzania

Uganda

Eritrea

Madagascar

Malawi

Guinea-Bissau

Lesotho

Rwanda

Mauritania

Mozambique

Southern Sudan

Sao

Tome and Principe Zambia

 

Oceania has 5:

Vanuatu

Samoa

Tuvalu

Kiribati

Solomon Islands

 

The North America only one:

Haiti

 

And 2 of the 4 th in the world:

Cape Verde

Botswana

 

The world's poorest countries belong to their ratings, so it makes sense to select the top 10 most such, the number of GDP. This list begins with the very poor and can be a little different:

Congo

Liberia

Zimbabwe

Solomon Islands

Somalia

Comoros

Guinea

CAR

Niger

Ethiopia

 

It is known by everybody that the economy is developing in different countries in different ways. The factors that make compiled rating may be noted by the gross domestic products, by the literacy rate and the percentage of the population of working citizens. Summing these factors in a special way, without any problems, can determine the level of the development of a region. Actually it was done. Based on some worldly reports it becomes clear to us that tens of thousands of people die every day directly from hunger. By the way, more than half of the world's population spends at least 30 rubles per day. These indicators are mainly related to poor developing countries of the world, because they are very backward and people do not want to work properly. In some cases this can be attributed to the nature and the lack of minerals.

 

Congo is a leader of the poorest state from the economy point of view. There always were constant wars and chaos.

 

Liberia has serious problems with the export, losing its diamond resources. It has a large number of debts and bad lives.

 

Zimbabwe is not much better than others. There is most inflation and a small amount of money, as a result, unemployment and related phenomena.

 

In Solomon Islands, then things are a little better. In this country there are a lot of fish, so it caught almost all the inhabitants of the country. From fossils, too, all very good. However, technological progress, or something else does not allow to live normally.

 

Somalia is the most militant. Usually people are engaged in agriculture and cattle breeding. However, there were many pirates who robbed everyone who came across their path. However, such a laugh did not improve their lives in general.

 

Disaster occurred in Comoros because of an increase in population. The result was a lack of jobs and defaults.

 

People in Guinea are engaged in agriculture and fishing. This is the only thing by which they can survive. As an additional problem may be noted viruses.

 

Summing up our ranking of the world's poorest places, we tried to make you understand their general backwardness. In these places, residents never shone with mind and they do not understand anything in modern technologies. The level of literacy suggests that schools are not the main places to get life skills. What they wanted got it. Just do not know how to create good living conditions, then let it grow at least something. The fact that there are rich and poor countries is known to many. But ordinary citizens do not realize how poor countries are ... poor . The fact that living standards in these countries is poor, often referred to international organizations. Well, try to find out about the top 10 poorest countries in the world, consisting of ten states.
