While the world has made great progress in reducing extreme poverty over the last two decades, that progress has been measured primarily in terms of consumption or income. Other aspects of life are also critical for wellbeing, and a number of initiatives have been underway to develop multidimensional measures of poverty – including at the World Bank. This conference will bring together academics, practitioners, and people who have directly experienced poverty as co-researchers to better understand the key dimensions of poverty and their relationships. The conference will draw on research from a multi-year participatory project carried out by the International Movement ATD Fourth World, in collaboration with Oxford University. Their approach combines knowledge from action, academic research, and the life experiences of those who have faced poverty, to provide new insights about the multidimensional nature of poverty. World Bank, IMF and academic researchers and practitioners will comment and contribute their own perspectives. Conference participants will discuss how to make further progress in poverty measurement, policy, and action.
