New video! President of Colombia’s speech to the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network

Watch a video of President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia’s address to participants at the launch of the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network in Oxford on 6 June.

The President described Colombia’s experience of implementing a national multidimensional poverty measure based on the Alkire Foster method developed at OPHI. He called on the Network to lead social change and noted the ‘urgency of implementing a multidimensional approach in our battle against poverty.’

The network, for policymakers engaged in implementing multidimensional poverty measures, enables early adopters to share their experiences directly with other members.
