Poverty in the Pacific Island Countries (PICs) is generally viewed as hardship or an inadequate level of sustainable human development evidenced by lack of access to basic services, opportunities and resources (including cash) to meet the basic needs of the household or the customary obligations to the extended family, village community, and/or the church. It is estimated that 75 per cent of the region's poor reside in Papua New Guinea (PNG) with the remaining PICs accounting for roughly 600,000 of the poor, half of whom live in Fiji.
