Video: Poverty in El Salvador from the perspective of the protagonists

UNDP El Salvador and OPHI have produced a video exploring what poverty means, from the perspective of those who are experiencing it.

The video reveals that for those living in poverty in El Salvador, poverty means deprivations in housing, access to work, education, surroundings, health, food, security, and income.

Based on the experiences of poor people themselves, dimensions and deprivations of poverty have been identified to build a multidimensional poverty index to measure poverty in El Salvador.
