High Level Panel Endorses Multidimensional Approach to Poverty at the Global Partnership Meeting

Publicado el: December 2nd, 2016 Por MPPN

On 1 December, 2016, OPHI Co-Founder John Hammock moderated a session entitled “Multidimensional Poverty: Experiences from the South” that was organized by the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID) as part of the Second High Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation in Nairobi, Kenya.

The session featured a discussion on the importance of a multidimensional approach for both measuring poverty and for effective development cooperation in order to “ensure no one is left behind,” in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals. The Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network (MPPN), a network of 53 countries, was presented by Hammock as the type of platform that models a multidimensional approach.

Panelists included:

  • Thomas Silberhorn, Parliamentary State Secretary of Germany, who noted Germany’s support for multidimensional poverty, the MPPN, and the need to focus now on showing that the poor are graduating out of poverty.
  • Gina Casar, Executive Director of AMEXCID, who emphasized Mexico as the first country to adopt a multidimensional measure of poverty and a leader of the movement to use a multidimensional framework for poverty measurement and development cooperation
  • Charlotte Petri-Gornitzka, Chair of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee, who stressed this multidimensional lens needs to also focus on agency and voice as well as on the role of the private sector
  • Luis Tejada Chacón, Director of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), who explained Spain’s commitment to Triangular Cooperation–involving Northern and Southern donors in its programs
  • Jos Verbeek, Manager and Special Representative to the UN and WTO for the World Bank, who commented on the World Bank’s natural progression to now incorporating multidimensional poverty alongside its monetary poverty measures
  • Malik Muhammad Uzair Khan, a Member of the National Assembly of Pakistan, who stated that Pakistan had launched its National Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), with OPHI and UNDP assistance, and stressed the importance of local ownership of this new measure that is already being used for public policy

Hammock highlighted several points:

  • Poor people were graduating out of MPI poverty in early country adopters of the MPI.
  • Costa Rica provides a case study of effective development since the Government is using the MPI as a framework for its anti-poverty national budget. The private sector is involved in the whole MPI process.
  • The MPI complements income poverty and provides a specific focus for effective development cooperation.

The Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network promotes the national and global MPI and encourages knowledge sharing across countries incorporating multidimensional measures into effective policy. OPHI hosts the Secretariat of the MPPN.

4th MPPN Annual Meeting in Acapulco, Mexico 2016

Publicado el: November 15th, 2016 Por MPPN

4th MPPN Annual Meeting in Acapulco, Mexico 2016

Publicado el: November 14th, 2016 Por MPPN

High Level Representatives from 31 countries and nine international agencies gathered in Acapulco last November and approved a five point communique, that among other things

  • Endorsed the use of the MPI in the SDGs to track Target 1.2
  • Agreed to support the development of national MPIs
  • Agreed to develop policy tools that link to multidimensional measures
  • Called on the strengthening and expansion of the Network
  • Endorsed the use of the MPI to shape the programming of international actors.

The event also saw the launch of a new MPPN website – in both English and Spanish – as well as a new Magazine Dimensions, full of policy applications of MPI and country studies – and a set of in-depth policy briefings. In future these new publications will enable countries to share with each other in greater detail how they are using the MPI for resource allocation, policy coordination, and so on.

The Acapulco meeting offered a safe and lively place for meaningful South-South exchange.

  • Sharing was extensive. Ministers and senior speakers from 30 countries shared their groundbreaking work on multidimensional poverty underway in Colombia, China, Ecuador, South Africa, Chile, Seychelles, Costa Rica, Honduras, Paraguay, Morocco, Peru, and Tunisia.
  • Mexico offered a pre-conference training by CONEVAL on institutionalizing and communicating multidimensional poverty measures, and Mexican ministers shared their experiences in using multidimensional poverty measures to guide policy in a panel.
  • Countries shared work-in-progress on MPI including Argentina, Chad, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Cote d’Ivoire, Jamaica, Panama, St Lucia, and Uganda.
  • In-depth perspectives on policy uses of MPIs were offered by OPHI, China, South Africa, Costa Rica, and Colombia.
  • Country voices were complemented by keynote speakers included Luis Felipe Lopez Calva of the World Bank, Heike Kuhn of BMZ, and Martin Evans of UNICEF as well as Khalid Abu-Ismail of UN-ESCWA. The detailed agenda may be found here.

We want to thank SEDESOL and CONEVAL for their full support. We also want to recognize the strong support offered by the State Government of Guerrero, the Mexican Government’s agency, AMEXID, and support for the event from the World Bank, CAF and GIZ-Mexico.

We want to thank all those who came to Acapulco. We also want to encourage all of the Network participants to attend the next meeting—to be held in Beijing in October of 2017.
