Swedish Development Cooperation Agency’s Multidimensional View of Poverty

Publicado el: May 7th, 2018 Por MPPN

Being poor in terms of opportunities and choice concerns one’s possibilities to develop and/or use the resources to move out of poverty. Access to productive employment, education, health clinics, infrastructure, energy, markets and information affect the choices available and opportunities to escape from poverty.

Being poor through lacking power and voice relates to people’s ability to articulate their concerns, needs and rights in an informed way, and to take part in decision-making affecting these concerns.

In turn, being poor in terms of human security means that violence and insecurity are constraints to different groups’ and individuals’ possibilities to exercise their human rights and to find paths out of poverty.
