Madagascar

Though Madagascar’s economy benefits from ecotourism, ecological research, and a growing agricultural sector, the unequal distribution of wealth has left ninety percent of the country’s population living on less than two dollars a day. This widespread poverty, combined with weak government agencies and a tenuous political situation, has led to an alarming humanitarian situation. More than half of all children in Madagascar suffer from chronic malnutrition, and over half of the country’s population struggles with food insecurity.
