What does the network do?

The MPPN provides international support to policy makers engaged in or exploring the construction of multidimensional poverty measures, including input into the design of the measures, and the political processes and institutional arrangements that will sustain them.

The network has three main areas of work as encapsulated by the Communiqué agreed at the high-level meeting of the network in Cartagena, Colombia in June 2015. Participants work together to promote:

  • National multidimensional poverty measurement;
  • Global multidimensional poverty measurement such as in the post-2015 process;
  • Joint research.
