Multidimensional Child Deprivation Report in Ethiopia
SPRI Global was happy to support UNICEF Ethiopia and the Central Statistics Agency (CSA) in realizing Ethiopia’s commitment to deepening its understanding of the multiple dimensions of child poverty.
For this purpose, we carried out a multidimensional child deprivation analysis, applying UNICEF Innocenti’s Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) methodology. The study will primarily serve to monitor Ethiopia’s progress in achieving goals and objectives of the development agenda commitments and gain a comprehensive understanding of different aspects of children’s deprivation and poverty.
This accompanying report provides evidence for monitoring SDG 1.2.2. Reducing poverty of men, women, and children of all ages in all its dimensions, and other targets of the Sustainable Development Agenda. The report’s results will advance understanding of multidimensional deprivation experienced by children of Ethiopia and help policy makers approach child poverty in an integrated and comprehensive manner, highlighting the commitment of the Government of Ethiopia and its development partners in enhancing evidence-based policy-making in the area of child poverty reduction.
The report is now accessible through UNICEF Ethiopia.
