Exploring Multidimensional Poverty in Egypt using the Global MPI

IsDBI-OPHI Briefings

This brief, focusing on Egypt, moves away from standard income poverty assess­ments and explores multidimensional poverty in this IsDB Member Country. It brings to light multidimensional poverty as experienced at the national and subnational levels, providing a basis by which IsDB country programmes and government policies can be crafted.

The brief highlights the nuanc­es of countries’ multidimensional poverty situations through a systematic analytical framework, bringing out, for example, variations across sub-regions, between ur­ban and rural populations, and across age groups. This brief also tracks and highlights success stories, such as in Assuit, which made exemplary progress in reducing multidimensional poverty.
