Multidimensional Poverty Assessment for the Kyrgyz Republic
A methodology for a multidimensional poverty assessment tailored to the Kyrgyz Republic context
The aim of this report is to propose a methodology for a multidimensional poverty assessment tailored to the Kyrgyz Republic context. Such a measure provides a ‘tracking tool’ to monitor the country’s progress on core aspects of wellbeing. Even though a child-specific methodology is also presented in this report as an annex, the multidimensional poverty index constructed offers the possibility of analyzing relevant patterns of deprivations for children, as well as for other population groups.
The report was prepared within the framework of establishing the national monitoring system on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and SDG 1 in particular. National and Child Multi-Dimensional Poverty Index was developed with UNICEF conceptual and financial support, and research expertise from the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance (MGSoG) of Maastricht University integrated within United Nations University – MERIT (UNU-MERIT).
