拉美国家贫困率有所下降

联合国开发计划署称,最近几年拉丁美洲和加勒比海域有超过5600万人摆脱了贫困。
    拉美国家贫困率有所下降
    More than 56 million people have been lifted out of poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean in recent years, according to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
    联合国开发计划署称,最近几年拉丁美洲和加勒比海域有超过5600万人摆脱了贫困。
    A new UNDP report says poverty levels in the period from 2000-2012 fell from 41.7% to 25.3% of the population.
    But despite the progress, it warned that some 200m people, or 37.8% of the population, remained vulnerable.
    The UNDP has called for more investment in social protection programmes.
    It calculates poverty as living with less than $4 a day.
    Uneven results
    "In Latin America and the Caribbean, poverty has been reduced by almost half in the last decade, and the middle class rose from 22% of the population in 2000 to 34% in 2012," UNDP Director for Latin America and the Caribbean Jessica Faieta said.
    "Despite these achievements, a very high share of the population is living in constant uncertainty.
    "They are neither classified as living in poverty, nor have they gained access to a stable middle class status," she said.
    The people living on between $4 and $10 a day went up by 3.4% between 2000 and 2012.
