Executive Education Course on Multidimensional Poverty for SADC Steering Committee members

A rapidly increasing number of policymakers around the world are working to establish multidimensional poverty measures, using the Alkire Foster (AF) methodology developed by OPHI. These measures enable them to:

  • Allocate resources more effectively;
  • Improve policy design;
  • Identify interconnections among deprivations;
  • Monitor the effectiveness of policies over time;
  • Target poor people as beneficiaries of services or conditional cash transfers.

Organised by OPHI, this seminar was supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development through GIZ, as part of an agreement to establish an international peer network on multidimensional poverty measurement. The focus of this network is on strengthening country policymakers’ capacity to understand, design, and use multidimensional approaches to poverty measurement for policy purposes.
