The Economy of Francesco

#EoF webinar - The Hidden Dimensions of Poverty

How do we measure poverty? As the international community prepared new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the question of how we measure poverty became more important than ever before. The next on-life seminar of The Economy of Francesco will be an opportunity to deepen.

One of the conclusions of ATD’s participatory research on the Millennium Development Goals was that current measures of extreme poverty are inadequate. Some global statistics are very uncertain. In addition, the $1.90 a-day indicator of extreme poverty is deeply flawed. 

Extreme poverty is a multidimensional phenomenon. ATD Fourth World works on the question of measuring poverty on three fronts:

  • With people living in poverty, to include them as partners in building knowledge on development;
  • With researchers and international organizations, to find the best ways to measure poverty;
  • With governments and international organizations, to ensure that multidimensional measures of poverty are included in international sustainable development goals.

On the research front, we undertook a multi-year participatory research project, in collaboration with Oxford University, that connected people who have a direct experience of poverty with other experts. A key aim of this research was to complement “top down” definitions of poverty with experiential ones, and to demonstrate that it is possible to develop research methodologies that enable the fulfillment of human rights obligations to engage people in poverty in global policy making.
