Multidimensional Poverty in Afghanistan: Policy-oriented Report using the 2020 Afghanistan Income Expenditure and Labour Force Survey

IsDBI-OPHI Briefings

This report, focusing on Afghanistan using 2020 data, 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 report is action-oriented with a focus on relevant policy insights. It highlights the nuanc­es of Afghanistan’s multidimensional poverty situation through a systematic analytical framework, bringing out, for example, variations across sub-regions, between ur­ban and rural populations, and across age groups.
