Child Poverty and Deprivation Analysis using the Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) in Zambia

This study aims to conduct a national monetary and multidimensional (non-monetary) child poverty analysis using the 2010 and 2015 Zambia Living Conditions Monitoring Survey (LCMS) datasets. It will provide evidence that enhance knowledge and understanding about child poverty to support the prioritization of children’s needs in the 7th National Development Plan (2017-2021) and to inform an adequate and multi-sector policy response and subsequent budget allocations. The national capacity is also to be enhanced in selected Government institutions for regular and sustained measurement of monetary and multidimensional child poverty.
