UNDP and OPHI are excited to offer you a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on Designing a Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI). This five-week course facilitated in English draws on a handbook, How to Build a National Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI): Using the MPI to inform the SDGs, launched by UNDP and OPHI in July 2019. The MPI complements traditional monetary poverty measures by capturing severe deprivations in education, health, living standards, employment, safety, and many other dimensions of poverty. Using country and sub-national examples, this course offers detailed practical guidance for policymakers, technical experts, and other stakeholders on how to design an MPI at the national and local levels.

  • Gain hands-on tools to develop a comprehensive MPI capturing multiple simultaneous deprivations faced by the poor
  • Interact with experts who are actively engaged in developing national and subnational MPIs
