From November 2-4, 2017 SPRI Global team members participated in the APPAM (Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management) conference in Chicago, themed “Measurement Matters: Better Data for Better Decisions”. It was especially interesting to engage in discussions about poverty measurement with fellow research colleagues and policy-makers of various backgrounds.
SPRI Global experts recently traveled to Conakry to hold hands-on training sessions for members of the Laboratoire d’Analyse Socio Anthropologique de Guinée (LASAG) of the public University of Sonfonia.
During the first week of October, 2017, SPRI Global experts conducted a technical training in Swaziland on multidimensional poverty with experts from the Central Statistical Office, UNICEF, Ministry of Economic Planning & Development, and other governmental stakeholders. The training was part of a long-term national capacity building in an effort to tackle non-monetary poverty in Swaziland in accordance to the Sustainable Development Goal 1.2.
