“Acting together to achieve social and environmental justice for all”. This is the United Nations theme for October 17, 2020, the World Day for Overcoming Poverty.

“People who live in extreme poverty are often the most affected by climate and environmental change. While they are already taking action to resist poverty, today they are also facing the consequences of these new challenges. On October 17, the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, the United Nations ensures that their knowledge, contributions and experience are recognized and celebrated. The Economy of Francesco would like to contribute to celebrate the date by organizing an online conversation entitled How do we measure poverty? that will focus on extreme poverty as a multidimensional phenomenon.

The dialogue will be held with Xavier Godinot, Research Director at ATD Fourth World’s Joseph Wresinski Research Institute. He is currently conducting international participatory research with Oxford University on “Determining the dimensions of poverty and how to measure them”, which implements the Merging of Knowledge approach. In this project, people living in poverty are part of the national research teams in six countries, alongside academics and practitioners. Godinot will dialogue with Martha Pancheva, Assistant Professor of Economics, (Sophia University) and John Paul Yumul, Lecturer on the Economy, Society and Sustainable Development (Manila University). Introduction by Luigino Bruni, Scientific Director of The Economy of Francesco.
