This paper will describe and elaborate on the understanding of extreme poverty that has been reached by Concern.
Concern understands that extreme poverty and thus extremely poor people are those without basic assets, or even when basic assets are available their existence does not generate sufficient returns to meet basic human needs. Concern also recognises that the two dimensions of inequality, and risk and vulnerability need to be tackled if people are to exit sustainably out of extreme poverty.
