High-income countries people consume more than low-income

World

March 14, 2019

NAIROBI: Even though extraction and consumption continue to grow across the world, an average person living in a high-income country consumes 60 per cent more than someone in an upper-middle-income country and over 13 times what is consumed by someone in a low-income country, informed a report -'Global Resources Outlook 2019', released here on Tuesday during the fourth United Nations Environment Assembly.

"While extraction and consumption are growing in upper-middle-income countries, high-income countries continue to outsource resource-intensive production. An average person living there consumes 60 per cent more and over 13 times the level of the upper-middle and low-income groups," states the report. The upper-middle-income countries increased their global share of domestic material consumption from 33 per cent in 1970 to 56 per cent in 2017.
