Developing rapid assessments on multidimensional poverty
To understand how economic recovery is progressing and translating into outcomes for people, and if, how and for whom pandemic response efforts are leading to recovery, decision makers need data about the circumstances of specific groups—including women and girls, people with disabilities and those living in poverty. Such data can support decision makers to focus action where it is most needed and can make most difference, and support accountability. Developed by Equality Insights, the Equality Insights Rapid is a tool that measures individual, gender-relevant multidimensional poverty in the context of COVID-19. Equality Insights Rapid data will provide new information about who has been most affected by the disruptions associated with COVID-19, in what ways, to inform priorities and targeting, for government and civil society.
