Poverty & equity

  "Poverty is a state or condition in which a person or community lacks the financial resources and essentials for a minimum standard of living. Poverty means that the income level from employment is so low that basic human needs can't be met. Poverty-stricken people and families might go without proper housing, clean water, healthy food, and medical attention. Each nation may have its own threshold that determines how many of its people are living in poverty."

-From What is poverty? by James Chen and Michael Sonnenshein on Investopedia.

The resources on this inchoate page pointedly focus on the topic of poverty and its

   complex relationship to sustainability and the environment.

It is worth emphasizing that this page is largely a place-holder at this point, and hardly

   begins to address the amount of coverage of poverty that one can find on the web.
