World Poverty

World Poverty

Cartographer: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal

"Improved natural resource management can support long-term economic growth, from which poor people, in rural areas and elsewhere, can benefit to achieve and sustain social progress and development. The map is a part of a set, presenting different natural resources, with a focus on developing countries, and the use of natural resources for economic growth and poverty alleviation."

Several maps, graphics and illustrations have been developed in a large project about the complex links between environment and poverty reduction. Read Fraxen's own short version and summary of the project.

Hugo Ahlenius (Fraxen) is one of my favorite cartographers making beautiful modern maps.
