More than one billion people–one-sixth of the world’s population–live in extreme poverty on less than $1 a day. At the Earth Institute,  researchers take a “human needs” approach to developing solutions to address extreme poverty.  Earth Institute researchers, scientists and development practitioners help fight global poverty by addressing its  root causes: hunger and malnutrition, access to health care, water, sanitation, energy, trade barriers, gender equality, access to education and so forth.
