Enhancing Poverty Alleviation Performance: The Importance of Implementing Multidimensional Metrics
Guest Presenter: Julie Peachey, Director Social Performance Management, Grameen Foundation
Summary: This webinar revealed the importance of measuring a venture’s poverty alleviation effects on local stakeholders such as buyers, sellers, and communities. The presenters shared why impact metrics collected should not just address stakeholders’ economic well-being but also their capabilities well-being (i.e., knowledge, health, aspirations, self-esteem, empowerment) and relationship well-being (i.e., status, social support, social networks, violence, local environment). Attendees learned about the advantages of using a multidimensional lens to measure poverty alleviation, as well as heard from the Grameen Foundation regarding examples of its successful multidimensional measurement efforts.
