ESCWA, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, and the League of Arab States are partnering to organize a regional workshop for public officials on the use of national multidimensional poverty indices (MPIs) for policy development and poverty reduction strategies.

The workshop has the following objectives:

  • Introducing the concept of multidimensional poverty (including national MPIs) and inequality in the Arab region
  • Facilitating South-South learning, with global policymakers sharing knowledge with Arab leaders
  • Providing hands-on experience in using the ESCWA Multidimensional-Poverty Assist Tool platform and optimization tool
  • Exchanging knowledge on best practices in using national MPIs as a tool for poverty reduction strategies, for informing social policies and national reform, and for monitoring and planning purposes.
