CNN mentions OPHI’s work in stories of note in 2013

In a special news piece over Christmas, CNN reported on four stories of note from 2013, including OPHI’s analysis of the Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) 2013.

The article noted that ‘a study from Oxford University’s Poverty and Human Development Initiative…concluded that developing countries were enjoying remarkable success in alleviating the worst poverty.’ The piece goes on to describe how OPHI’s findings were echoed in the United Nations’ 2013 Human Development Report. The authors noted that growth and a combination of increased aid and a focus on health and education help explain the decreases observed in poverty.
