La Prensa publishes Alkire interview on the many faces of poverty

Nicaraguan newspaper La Prensa has published an interview with OPHI Director Sabina Alkire on the topic of unidimensional and multidimensional poverty in Latin America.

The article, in Spanish, discusses different understandings of poverty around the world; the prospects for decreasing poverty in Nicaragua; and the World Bank’s goal to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030.

In the interview, Alkire stresses the importance of listening to poor people’s views about the dimensions that constitute their experience of poverty. She also talks about how multidimensional poverty measures provide policymakers with a way to reflect the multiple concerns of poor people in anti-poverty programmes.
