Who is living in extreme poverty?

Better poverty measures will enable more accurate and faster identification of who extremely poor people are, where they live, the factors driving change in their lives and the policies and programmes that are effective that are delivering sustainable and positive change.

We will develop improved approaches to measure extreme poverty and identify extremely poor populations or those with an increased risk of slipping (further) into extreme poverty. We will be testing and experimenting with new and better ways to measure extreme poverty, drawing on innovations in collecting and analysing data. This data and evidence will support governments and decision makers in more effectively focussing and targeting their investments.
