Dimensions Magazine is MPPN’s new communications vehicle to share in a practical, concise and informative way, different countries’ experiences with multidimensional poverty measures.

Poverty is a phenomenon that goes far beyond income poverty and, as such, must be understood and measured in all its complexity. A group of countries has taken the initiative in this way of viewing poverty and has established the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network (MPPN). The MPPN is a network of countries and institutions focused on eliminating poverty through multidimensional poverty measures on the premise that: “what gets measured, gets done”.

Dimensions Magazine is MPPN’s new communications vehicle to share in a practical, concise and informative way, different countries’ experiences with multidimensional poverty measures. Dimensions shows, in plain language, the multiple forms of poverty and the ways multidimensional poverty is measured and analysed in different countries, their different experiences in the design of public policies to eradicate it, as well as reviews on new research studies on the subject.
