High-Level Panel to Make the Case at the UN for a New Poverty Measure

As the UN General Assembly meets this week in special session to discuss post-2015 development goals, OPHI is involved in a high-level international panel  being brought together in UN Conference Room 1 on 25 September to showcase country experiences of a new, more comprehensive approach to tackling poverty in all its forms, not just income poverty. This is organised under the aegis of the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network (MPPN) and is being hosted by the Governments of Mexico, Dominican Republic and Germany under the title “Universal Multidimensional Poverty Measurement for the Effective Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals”.  It will be addressed by the Mexican Foreign Secretary among other distinguished speakers.
