Summary:
"The Arab Multidimensional Poverty Report, the first of its kind following the launch of the 2030 Agenda, is the result of three years of collaboration between the League of Arab States' Council of Arab Ministers for Social Affairs, the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), and Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI). The primary objective of the report is to provide practical proposals to support Arab efforts in the eradication of poverty in all its dimensions and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. To this end, the report examines household and child poverty using normative methodologies which were adapted to the needs of the Arab region after a consultative process with regional and global experts, and representatives of governments in the region. After establishing the root causes of multidimensional poverty in the Arab region, the report offers key recommendations for addressing gaps in education, improving social protection systems, investing in children, developing rural areas and accounting for the challenges and limitations in the development of an Arab multidimensional poverty index."--Publisher's description.
