At the end of the week-long course, participants were expected to:
- Understand the framework in which the multidimensional poverty measurement emerged and its relevance to the current state of poverty analysis;
- Be able to adapt the Alkire and Foster multidimensional poverty method according to their own requirements and contexts (including the calculation of the basic OECS Multidimensional Poverty Indicators (MPI));
- Understand why and how multidimensional poverty measurement and analysis adds value to unidimensional measures and dashboards, and how they can be used to inform policy-making; and
- Receive information about further opportunities to engage within the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network for policy makers.
The Enhanced Country Poverty Assessment Programme was launched in July 2016 and will be executed by the OECS Commission.
