Broadcasting UN Entity
This official Side Event will launch the 2023 Global Multidimensional Poverty Index with a presentation and discussion on the joint report – Unstacking global poverty: data for high impact action – by the United Nations Development Programme and the Oxford Poverty & Human Development Initiative of the University of Oxford.
The Global MPI is an internationally comparable index of acute multidimensional poverty that highlights poverty across more than 100 countries in developing contexts. This Side Event, which is kindly hosted by the Permanent Mission of Fiji to the United Nations, will facilitate a high-level discussion on the relevance of multidimensional poverty measurement to poverty reduction and the importance of household surveys in providing regular up-to-date data that can guide policy efforts.
