Europe is home to 738 million people, 11 percent of the world’s population. Though there are no developing countries in the region, it struggles with economic stability and a major influx of migrants in the last three years has strained resources and lead to political divides.
About 109 million people, or 21 percent, of the European population are at risk of poverty or social exclusion. The risk is higher for women (22%) than for men (19%).
Over 63,000 people sought refugee in Europe in 2019. Thousands are feared to have drowned in perilous journeys across the Mediterranean Sea.
45% of those living in poverty in Europe are migrants and refugees.
5.8% of the European population lives under severe economic strain and are unable to meet their nutritional needs.
