OPHI's Alkire Foster Method for Measuring Multidimensional Poverty | Oxford Poverty & Human Development Initiative (OPHI) Most countries of the world define poverty by income. Yet poor people themselves define their poverty much more broadly, to include lack of education, health, housing, empowerment, humiliation, employment, personal security and more. No one indicator, such as income, is uniquely able to capture the multiple aspects that contribute to poverty. Multidimensional poverty encompasses a range of deprivations that a household may suffer. At a glance, multidimensional measures present an integrated view of the situation. OPHI has developed and applied measures and tests of multidimensional poverty, wellbeing, chronic poverty and equality of opportunity. Sabina Alkire and James Foster have created a new method for measuring multidimensional poverty. For information on all OPHI’s measures and tests of multidimensional poverty, wellbeing, chronic poverty and equality of opportunity, see OPHI’s Working Paper Series. The Alkire and Foster method has been adopted by national governments.

Globe Finland GLOBE-projekti on kansainvälinen opiskelijoita, opettajia ja tutkijoita yhdistävä ympäristötieteen ja -kasvatuksen verkko. Ohjelmassa havainnoidaan päivittäin ympäristöä ja tuotetaan tietoa, jonka tavoitteena on parempi ympäristön ymmärtäminen. GLOBE-ohjelmassa on mukana 111 maata. Suomesta ilmoittautui projektiin 125 koulua, mutta tällä hetkellä aktiivikoulujen määrä on n. kymmenen koulua. Mikä on GLOBE? GLOBE = The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment program on maailman laajuinen toiminnallinen projekti, jossa oppilaat ja opettajat toimivat yhteistyössä tutkijoiden kanssa ympäristön hyväksi.

3 New Corporate Sustainability Strategies from this Year’s Mindshare Meeting The annual 2012 Mindshare Meeting of WRI’s Corporate Consultative Group (CCG) brought together experts and leading representatives from business partners to discuss cutting-edge issues at the forefront of corporate sustainability. The discussion embodied the ideas that can be generated when business works with non-profits to identify emerging issues and develop solutions to the planet’s most pressing challenges. Business leaders from almost all of the 36 CCG companies attended this year’s meeting. With nearly $3 trillion in combined annual sales, this group’s reach and influence has a significant impact on people and the planet. 3 Ideas to Boost Corporate Sustainability We had a stimulating two days with corporate leaders. Integrating Environmental Data, Metrics, and Analysis Within Supply Chain Decisions Is Increasingly a "Must-Do" Rather than a "Can-Do." These are just a few of the forward-thinking ideas emerging from this year’s MindShare Meeting.

Ocean Health Index Mesurer la pauvreté : l'Indice de pauvreté multidimensionnelle En juillet 2010, l’Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) avec le soutien du PNUD (Programme des Nations Unies pour le D éveloppement) initiait une nouvelle mesure de la pauvreté, l’indice de pauvreté multidimensionnelle (IPM). À compter du prochain rapport sur le développement humain (novembre 2010), l’IPM remplacera l’Indice de pauvreté humaine (IPH) pour les pays en développement. L’indice de pauvreté multidimensionnelle (IPM) représente les manques graves dont souffrent des individus de manière simultanée. Il identifie les manques simultanés des ménages sur l’ensemble des trois mêmes dimensions que pour l’Indice de Développement humain - IDH- (niveau de vie, santé et éducation). Ce nouvel indice rend compte de la pauvreté « aigüe », de ses multiples manifestations, en ne se limitant pas aux aspects économiques mais en éclairant différentes formes de privations avec le foyer comme unité de mesure. L’indice de développement humain ajusté aux inégalités

Statistics and Monitoring - Introduction to UNICEF's work on statistics and monitoring UNICEF is committed to changing the world for children. It strives to protect their rights, improve their health, and nurture their development through sound planning and monitoring of policy results. UNICEF measures the situation of children and women and tracks progress through data collection and analysis. It maintains and updates global databases and promotes dissemination of evidence-based data for planning and advocacy. UNICEF is the lead United Nations (UN) agency responsible for the global monitoring of the child-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Supporting data collection UNICEF assists countries in the collection of data through Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS), the international household survey programme it developed following the 1990 World Summit for Children. Starting in 2009, MICS is implementing the fourth round of surveys (MICS4). MICS provides statistically sound, internationally comparable estimates of indicators.

Reduce emissions before trying climate engineering With so little being done politically on climate change, Dana Milbank ["Plan B on climate change," op-ed, Oct. 17] noted that scientists want to research additional measures, often called geoengineering or, better, climate engineering. Removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere will be essential, but it will have a significant effect only with sharp emissions reductions. Reducing warming by interfering with incoming solar radiation appears possible but is likely to have unintended side effects and involves difficult governance issues. Climate engineering thus makes sense as a strategy only after making commitments to limit emissions. Ending dithering requires both a well-designed cap-and-trade program to provide incentives for industry to move aggressively and cost-effectively, and a carbon tax with per capita rebates to provide incentives for families and individuals to adopt green technologies.

New Global Commission to Put Business at the Centre of Sustainable Development — GCBSD A commission of business, labour and civil society leaders, established by Unilever CEO Paul Polman and former United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Mark Malloch-Brown, will highlight the massive rewards to businesses who take a lead in poverty reduction and sustainable development Davos, Switzerland (21 January 2016) – Businesses that join global efforts to end extreme poverty and protect the planet’s finite natural resources can reap great rewards and protect their long-term performance, a proposition that will be tested by a new commission launched today at the World Economic Forum. The Global Commission on Business and Sustainable Development will work over the next year to articulate and quantify the compelling economic case for businesses to engage in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including: The Global Commission brings together international leaders from business, labour, financial institutions and civil society.

HDI surprisingly similar to GDP/capita Human Development Index HDI is advanced as being a better indicator than “GDP per capita” in measuring the progress of Nations. HDI is calculated by UNDP from indicators for health, education and living standard (income/person). The methodology is quite complicated but it well documented BUT look at a plot of the correlation between HDI and GDP/capita or all countries in Gapminder World www.bit.ly/XxQw0B You will be surprised! In conclusions: If you want better health and education fix economic growth. Hans Rosling
