What the Global MPI tells us about child poverty: Sabina Alkire

March 27, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Professor Sabine Alkire, Director of the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) at the University of Oxford presented a public lecture at the Children’s Policy Centre on 27 March 2023.

The global multidimensional poverty measure covers 111 countries, 6.1 billion people in 2022. This seminar presented the global MPI 2022 findings. It also probed further the measurement of child poverty, given that one half of the 1.2 billion multidimensionally poor people are children. Finally, it explored new methods for illuminating gendered and intra household disparities across individual children, using the micro data underneath the global MPI. The findings were presented in an intuitive and non-technical manner.
