Projects poverty rate to fall from 51 p.c. in 1990 to 22 p.c. in 2015
India and China have recorded the sharpest decline in poverty figures in the Asian region with poverty rate projected to fall from 51 per cent in 1990 to about 22 per cent in 2015 – on track to cut poverty in half by the millennium development goals (MDGs) target – in China, the poverty rate is expected to fall below 5 per cent by 2015, according to the latest MDGs Report, 2011 released by the United Nations.
Asia is also making steady progress in improving child and maternal health but South Asia, of which India is a part, lags in nutrition, sanitation and gender equality. Despite strong improvements in political participation, only 18 per cent of parliamentary seats were held by women in Southern and South Eastern Asia in 2011.
