In the event, Camilo Centa, INE director, indicated: “the indicators that UNDP and OPHI globally use may not reflect what our priorities are, that is why we are here to identify our dimensions and indicators and then calculate our Multidimensional Poverty Index.”

The consultation main objectives are:

  • Disseminate methodology and importance of the MPI
