The update of the global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) in 2020, contains unprecedented and riveting findings – on how poverty reduced in a study covering 5 billion people, on how COVID-19 might affect projected levels of multidimensional poverty, and on how MPI interacts with SDG indicators like vaccination, work, and environment.

Join our panelists for a discussion of how to understand and fight poverty in the present times. The panel will consider the importance of a multidimensional approach to understand current poverty levels and trends in poverty reduction.

The discussion will also explore how the MPI can provide a tool to chart pathways out of multidimensional poverty and explore the correlations between the MPI and pressing global challenges such as immunisation and climate change.
