‘Who are the poorest of the poor?’ – this week’s lunchtime seminar

This Thursday, 27 February 2014, OPHI Research Officer Suman Seth will present a seminar titled ‘Who are the poorest of the poor? Assessing ultra poverty in developing countries’.

In the seminar, Seth will discuss some results from this year’s Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), the MPI 2014, which focus on the multidimensional aspects of poverty faced by the very poorest in developing countries.
