Poverty, like development, is multidimensional. The new Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) 2018 – to be launched on 20 September in New York - looks to identify the ways in which people are being left behind. And it throws light on where these people live and how they are deprived.
Jointly developed by UNDP and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative at the University of Oxford (OPHI), the 2018 MPI paints a picture of multidimensional poverty across 105 developing countries.
As part of a new generation of indicators, the 2018 MPI, both complements the $1.90/day monetary measure of poverty and adds insight into many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The release of the new data will be followed by a high-level discussion on multidimensional poverty measures and their policy uses.
