Sierra Leone Multidimensional Poverty Index 2019

Sierra Leone is on a development trajectory towards achieving middle-income status by 2035. This report presents the results of the Sierra Leone National Multidimensional Poverty Index. The structure of the measure is the result of a long process of discussions led by the Ministry of Planning and Economic Development, Statistics Sierra Leone, and UNDP Sierra Leone. The design and computation of the National Multidimensional Poverty Index has included discussions and meetings with various stakeholders in the country. The purpose of the index is to monitor the reduction of poverty in all its dimensions and to provide relevant information to guide the implementation of social policies in the country. The figures in this report provide critical baselines for the implementation of the Medium-term National Development Plan.
