SPRI Global was happy to support UNICEF Zambia, the Ministry of National Development Planning, and the Central Statistical Office in launching the first child poverty study in Zambia using a multidimensional approach, and and now publishing its report. The study is based on UNICEF’s Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) approach, and its conclusive findings are based on the unique analysis of deprivations among individual children (not on household data). This analysis considers the nature of child deprivations at different life stages allowing for a precise measurement of deprivations of children in poverty.
UNICEF and the National Institute of Statistics (INE) recently published the Child Poverty Report for Angola, which SPRI Global was happy to collaborate on. The institutes adopt the Child-Rights approach advocated by UNICEF and reflected in the MODA methodology. This approach emphasises the importance of the nature of the UN Convention on the rights of the child, by giving equal weights to the dimensions in which children can be deprived.
UNICEF and the National Institute of Statistics Rwanda (NISR) recently published their Multidimensional Child Poverty study for Rwanda. The study measures child poverty using individual deprivation data for children applying UNICEF’s Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) approach.
