Multidimensional poverty index (MPI) for the countries in the Hindu Kush Himalaya region

Year: 2012 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, Nordpil
Description:
The MPI is an index of acute multidimensional poverty. It shows the number of people who are multi-dimensionally poor. It reflects deprivations in very rudimentary services and core human functioning for people across 104 countries. Although constrained by data limitations, MPI reveals a different pattern of poverty than income poverty, as it highlights a different set of deprivations. There are many facets of poverty in the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region, including low income, poor health and access to health facilities, malnutrition, poor education, low skills, high dependence on the natural environment, high insecurity and physical vulnerability, drudgery and limited capability and entrepreneurial capacity. These dimensions of poverty are directly or indirectly associated with mountain physical and socio-economic factors, characterized by geographic isolation, socio-cultural marginalization, poor physical and economic infrastructure, poor access to markets, technologies, information, poor institutional services, and limited economic opportunities.
