9 September 2020 – You can now register to join us for this year’s High-Level Side Event ‘Poverty at a Crossroad: Using Leadership and the Multidimensional Poverty Index to Build Back Better’ at the 75th UN General Assembly which will take place online on Thursday 24 September at 09:00 EDT.
Hosted by the Governments of Chile and Pakistan, and UNDP, on behalf of the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network (MPPN), this event will convene global leaders with a demonstrated commitment to addressing the multidimensional effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lives of people living in multidimensional poverty. It will introduce innovative uses of MPIs as policy tools during the crisis to drive efficiency, targeting, and coordination for the response agenda. It will finally make a collective call for collaboration to turn the corner on poverty during this tragic pandemic and recession, by creatively redefining policies that are implemented aiming to reduce poverty in all its dimensions.
