OPHI’s new work on Urban Poverty

OPHI is working on a project financed by the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) to develop a new methodology to measure and further the understanding of urban poverty. The pilot project revolves around creating a framework for urban poverty analysis based on concepts of multidimensional poverty and vulnerability and involves qualitative and quantitative work in four pilot cities in Latin America – Santiago, La Paz, Managua and Kingston.

The final product will be indicators to measure urban poverty that will include several of the indicators on missing dimensions for poverty analysis developed by OPHI.
