  • The Alkire Foster methodology of multidimensional poverty measurement;
  • Measurement design – purpose, unit of measure, dimensions, indicators, cut-offs and weights;
  • Estimation of multidimensional poverty and interpretation of the results;
  • Subgroup decomposition and mapping;
  • Multidimensional poverty changes over time;
  • Econometric analysis of multidimensional poverty and impact evaluation; and
  • Institutions, policies, and communication.
