More than 30.5 percent of the population in the Dominican Republic lives below the poverty line.
Widespread poverty, a lack of opportunities, and environmental issues such as water shortages, soil erosion, deforestation, flooding and droughts are barriers to progress. Unemployment and underemployment are widespread.
