4 July, 2013

On Thursday 6 June 2013, high-level representatives from around 20 countries gathered in Oxford to formally launch the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network, a global network for policymakers engaged in implementing multidimensional poverty measures.

The launch events began with a Policy Symposium held in the auditorium of the beautiful Magdalen College, which was founded in the 15th century. Following an introduction by OPHI Director Sabina Alkire, Dr Gonzalo Hernández Licona, Executive Secretary of Mexico’s National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL), presented Mexico’s national multidimensional poverty measure, and Bruce Mac Master, Director of Colombia’s Department for Social Prosperity, presented the MPI-Colombia.

High-level representatives of China, Mexico, Morocco, India, Brazil, Malaysia and El Salvador then spoke about the explorations in multidimensional poverty measurement taking place in their countries. You can watch video recordings and download the presentations from the Policy Symposium here.
