The Chinese government, in partnership with the United Nations Development Program, established the International Poverty Reduction Centre in China (IPRCC) in 2005. Since then, it has undertaken a study of multidimensional poverty in the Wu Ling Mountain Region, which is one of the 14 priority contiguous regions for targeting national anti-poverty programs. The resulting comprehensive report detailed its findings and included policy recommendations. Based on this initial work, IPRCC and the National Bureau of Statistics, China (NBS), with the participation of OPHI, are planning to undertake a national multidimensional poverty measurement study.
