Joined MPPN: 2013

A political and technical committee comprised of representatives from Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, and St. Kitts and Nevis, is using the Alkire Foster method, developed by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI), to compute a Multidimensional Poverty Index for the region. The new index will be tailored to capture the non-income aspects of poverty in the Eastern Caribbean region. This initiative is supported by the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).
