Following on from the Putting Children First conference, Christian Oldiges, OPHI, Oxford University, explains how governments can apply the Alkire-Foster (AF) method - a flexible technique for measuring poverty - to identify multidimensionally poor children and compute Child Multidimensional Poverty Indices (C-MPIs) that can be used to guide public policies. The blog draws on the ESRC-DFID enabled project on Multidimensional Poverty led by University of Oxford.
