This podcast goes to the very roots and heart of Business Fights Poverty – we are going to deeply examine poverty. What it is, where it occurs, to whom, why and what we can do about it.

Global exert and leading thinker Sabina Alkire who directs the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) at the University of Oxford – shares her lifelong research into poverty. During our conversation Sabina explains how measuring multidimensional poverty can incorporate different dimensions, or aspects of poverty, to create measures tailored to each context. With colleagues at OPHI this has been applied and implemented empirically to produce a Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI).
Sabina shares how the world has experienced poverty over the past years, where this is changing, including some rays of hope that we can build from. In addition Sabina shares deeply practical ways to use this data and successfully address poverty.
