|Overview : |
The global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) is produced yearly by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) and aims to measure poverty by tracking multiple sets of deprivations relating to health, education, basic standards of living, employment and other relevant dimensions of poverty. As such, the MPI provides a comprehensive and in-depth picture of poverty – in all its dimensions – and monitors progress towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 1 – to end world poverty in all its forms.
The global MPI is extracted from over 100 national multidimensional poverty indices and complement existing measures of income poverty by revealing populations living in poverty who would otherwise be overlooked. The national MPIs help identify not only who is living in poverty, but also how they experience poverty. They reveal the overlapping deprivations within and across groups in different parts of a country and enable policymakers to see how these deprivations change over time.
In Nigeria, UNDP and the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) are currently collecting data for the 2022 Nigeria MPI report. The report will measure deprivations at the household and individual level in health, education and standard of living across the country. The findings will contribute to building a deeper, more holistic understanding of what poverty means in Nigeria. In turn, the report will provide evidence to improve policies to reach the most severely poor and facilitate approaches to implement the SDGs in a way that address the deprivations that currently leave people behind.
While data is at the core of the MPI report, impactful and accessible visual content is critical for the outreach and impact of the report to enhance engagement and interaction with development practitioners, policy makers and the general public. In this regard, UNDP is seeking the services of one(1) individual contractor to capture and produce impactful videography to be used in the 2022 Nigeria Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) report and launch event. The video content will also be used as advocacy material online through UNDP and its partners social media channels.
