The difference we make, 2010

There are 1.4 billion extremely poor people in the world, living on
less than US$1.25 a day. About 1 billion of these men, women and
children live in the rural areas of developing countries.
Nearly 2 billion rural people live on less than US$2 a day. Most are
smallholder farmers and their families, who depend on agriculture for
their livelihoods.
Today, they must cope with rapid and unprecedented changes. Climate
change, a growing world population, and volatile food and energy
prices are pushing more people into extreme poverty and hunger.
For the first time in human history, the number of hungry people has
passed 1 billion. On top of this, tens of millions more people are
expected to go hungry by 2020 as a result of climate change.
