Introduction

The event took place on the 25 September 2014, 13:15-14:00, and was co-hosted by the governments of Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Germany, supported by the government of Colombia, and backed by senior representatives from over 35 governments and international institutions within the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network. The event brought together leaders at the forefront of innovations in poverty measurement, in order to show why we need a completely new way to measure poverty, based on a more comprehensive understanding of human deprivations and their structural causes. Concrete country examples of MPIs were presented, as well as international mechanisms and initiatives that are already integrating MPI into their visions and operations, such as the Global Partnership.
