Title : Multidimensional Poverty Approach and Development of Poverty Indicators: The case of Bangladesh

Authors : Tamgid Chowdhury, Pundarik Mukhopadhaya

Abstract : The multidimensionality of poverty is often neglected at the policy-formulation stage in developing countries. As need priorities of local poor vary across countries and within regions of the same country, an understanding of finely tuned poverty indicators should be the starting point in formulating country-specific poverty-reduction strategies. By reviewing cross-country studies and existing poverty literature, this paper demonstrates the construction of a multidimensional poverty model to better inform poverty listing in the case of Bangladesh.
