Report of World Bank

The World Bank has released new statistics about changes in the way of life of people residing in cities around the world. These figures are based on the last two decades, illustrating the percentage of people living in slum areas in various countries in 2000 and the changes observed until 2020.

According to the World Bank, a noticeable reduction in the percentage of people residing in slum areas has been observed in most countries from 2000 to 2020. Analysts have conducted an analysis of 67 countries and published a chart, revealing that 60 countries have made progress towards improvement, while 7 countries have experienced an increase in slum populations. These 7 countries are Angola, Myanmar, Iraq, Ghana, Suriname, Cuba, and Ireland.

On the one hand, the West African country Burkina Faso has witnessed the most rapid decrease in slum populations. According to the report, Burkina Faso has recorded a reduction of over 55% in slum populations.

On the other hand, the African country Angola has experienced the highest increase in slum populations. According to the statistics, Angola has seen an increase of over 40% in slum populations over the past 20 years.

Two aspects are particularly surprising. First, the economic situation for the general population in the European country Ireland is deteriorating. Second, nuclear-armed countries like Pakistan and India are among the top 15 countries regarding slum populations. This provides an estimate of the economic conditions for people in these countries.

In Pakistan, there has been a reduction of over 35% in slum populations in the past two decades, while in India, it is approximately 7%.
