A lively discussion on tools for assessing poverty reduction strategies is happening over on the United Nations Academic Impact website. The e-discussion has been set up to complement the upcoming “Building the Research Agenda for Impact Assessment” workshop, organised by the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Experiences from Bangladesh, Australia, South Africa are shared during the discussion, and institutions such as the World Bank and University of Manchester have contributed. José Manuel Roche, OPHI Researcher, has responded to the thread on methodologies in poverty reduction assessment, with a post on the potential of the Multidimensional Poverty Index as a tool to monitor the progress of anti-poverty strategies.
