Webinar recording: Poverty measurement research


30th September 2020

Part of the Aspect Annual Event 2020 webinar series, this session – Taking poverty measurement research into the private sector, which took place on the 30th September –  focused on the Sophia Oxford project developed by ODID’s Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative. It explored how the organisation is taking the methodology to measure multidimensional poverty to the private sector and engaging companies in assessing poverty among their workforce. The panel discussed how to set an infrastructure, the importance of establishing credibility and managing partners, and the impact of COVID-19 on early ventures.
