The Global Multidimensional Poverty Index and the future of development

Join the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory Tuesday, September 15, 10:00 – 11:30 am AZ time, for a panel discussion with members of the Oxford Poverty & Human Development Initiative team working on advancement and implementation of the Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI). This team has worked with countries around the world in designing and computing National MPIs.

Learn about the MPI and gain insights into the personal perspective of key figures working around the world to address the missing dimensions of poverty in global development policy and practice. This event will consider links to the informal economy / human economy, inequality and justice challenges, and explore implications for addressing compounding global crises related to COVID-19 and the “new and differently poor” in terms of future development processes. More information and registration.

This event is being hosted by the Human Economies Focal Area of the Global Futures Laboratory. All are welcome to attend.
