Using the MPI to guide innovative policies to eradicate poverty in all its dimensions.
25 Sep 2018 -  Panama officially adopted its Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) in June 2017, joining the governments of Armenia, Bhutan, Colombia, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Mozambique, Pakistan and Dominican Republic, who have also taken the initiative to develop an MPI. Many other countries recognize the need to implement a measurement of multidimensional poverty and are in the process of developing it.
The discussion that will be generated in the side event “Using the MPI to guide innovative policies to eradicate poverty in all its dimensions”, under the leadership of the Government of Panama, will help establish an empirical framework enabling participants, through the governments or institutions they represent, to substantiate and craft programs or policies beyond the conventional poverty measurement exercises, and foster collaboration among institutions and sectors to design sustainable solutions having a greater impact on people living in poverty.
