    According to the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme), poverty is not a one-dimensional phenomenon (like a “mere” lack of money) but a multidimensional one that requires a set of multiple solutions across a variety of sectors. This definition is backed by that of the World Bank which recognizes that poverty results from several political, social and economical processes that interact between themselves in ways that make people’s living conditions worse and worse.
