What if three quarters of the world’s poor live (and have always lived) in Low Aid Countries?

ODI Background Notes:

  • “A large majority of poor people (around three quarters) live in Very Low Aid or Low Aid Countries (VLACs and LACs) and have done for at least two decades.
  • 7 out of 10 of the world’s poorest countries have seen aid levels fall as a proportion of GNI.
  • More poor people, not fewer, now live in countries more dependent on aid.
  • About three quarters of the world’s poorest live in countries that receive less than 2% of their annual income in aid”.
