Poverty is inextricably linked with hunger.The causes of poverty include poor people’s lack of resources, an extremely unequal income distribution in the world and within specific countries, conflict, and hunger itself.
Using 2005 statistics, in 2008 the world bank estimated that there were 1.345 billion poor people in developing countries who live on $1.25 a day or less.This compares with the later FAO estimate of 1.02 billion undernourished people.
Extreme poverty remains an alarming problem in the world’s developing regions, despite some progress that reduced the “dollar–now $1.25– a day” poverty from (an estimated) 1900 million people in 1981, a reduction of 29 percent over the period.
Progress in poverty reduction has been concentrated in Asia, and especially, East Asia, with the major improvement occurring in China.
However, in Sub-Saharan Africa, the number of people in extreme poverty has increased.  While it is correct, that poverty causes hunger, why then are so many people poor?
A principal and underpinning cause of poverty is harmful economic systems. The concentration of wealth, and therefore political and social power that controls the resources within any given society, is the principle cause of poverty and hunger.
Hunger is a cause of poverty, and thus of hunger. By causing poor health, low levels of energy, and even mental impairment, hunger can lead to even greater poverty by reducing people’s ability to work and learn, crippling them socially, economically and literally, thus leading to even greater hunger.
NAAM seeks to explore ways and support organizations and institutions that are working to break the cycle of hunger and poverty. Greater productivity, health and wealth that would result from would result in a vastly improved lifestyle for the poor and give them greater self-sufficiency.
