OPHI to Launch Global MPI 2014
The Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) today launches the Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) 2014 at an event titled ‘Tackling Poverty: How multidimensional poverty measurement reveals who is poor, how they are poor and where poverty has fallen‘, to be held at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI).
The Global MPI is an international measure of acute poverty covering over 100 developing countries which provides invaluable insights for the post-2015 development agenda. OPHI will present new estimations for 30 countries covering 2.5 billion people.
The event will be streamed live from 15:00 here.
