“Multidimensional Poverty Data: Post-Pandemic Insights and Policy Applications” Side Event to the 54th UN Statistical Commission

Publicado el: February 6th, 2023 Por MPPN

On behalf of the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network (MPPN), we are deeply honoured to invite you to attend the in-person side event Multidimensional Poverty Data: Post-Pandemic Insights and Policy Applications at the 54th UN Statistical Commission. The event will take place on Tuesday 28th February 2023, 8:00 AM (NY) at the Permanent Mission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to the United Nations 828 2nd Ave, 10017 New York; coffee and pastries will be available from 7:45 AM. Please register here 

In keeping with the 2023 UNSC theme of ‘Data and Indicators for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’, this event will convene Statistician Generals to share their insights and experiences with developing and using Multidimensional Poverty Indices (MPIs) to reduce poverty. The event is in-person only, and interventions will be held in English. 

The most recent UNDP-OPHI global Multidimensional Poverty Index report raised an urgent call for the data revolution not to leave household survey-based poverty data behind. It is also very useful to share improvements or nuances on post-pandemic data collection and on the inclusion of MPI indicators in this census round. Governments, agencies and other interested stakeholders will benefit from this knowledge exchange to work towards better data for better lives.
