Workshop on Multidimensional Poverty: Measurement and Eradication

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.
