African Nations Cut 'Multidimensional' Poverty

The Global Multidimensional Poverty Index can break down poverty levels for regions within countries, as well as reveal the dimensions in which people are poor.

Unfortunately, the number of poor African people is not reducing as fast as the poverty rates.

Over half a billion Africans (544 million) are poor by the standards of the MPI.
