Poverty is deprivation of material essentials such as food, shelter, drinking water, and clothing. It is also associated with the lack of education, freedom, and dignity. The uneven distribution of poverty at various scales, from the global to the household, via the national, regional, and local, suggests the importance of geographic factors in explaining its prevalence and understanding its nature.
The poverty around the world is increasing rapidly. In the south of the world's economic situation, caused not least by globalization and the wealth in the northern hemisphere, bad. The forecasts for the future look worse. If people as refugees as "illegal", as workers come here, they often appear to us as "too much" and a "problem".
