  • How should we measure poverty? | Jina Moore
    issues in fact BBC yesterday did a piece on how the overall HDI trends the report highlights shows that aid works which I found a bit odd The HDR 2010 doesn t explicitly make that pitch but more takes the position that investing in health and education does wonders whereas economic growth doesn t always have a clear relation The added touch in the HDR that I found interesting was a bit of that concern about context and politics in a specific setting So where aid works it s to do with how it s spent and political context as much as quantity I used to work in the Global HDR Office and could perhaps put you in touch with some folk there if useful Reply Jina Moore says November 6 2010 at 9 55 am Thanks for the oxfam blog link fascinating The inequality adjusted HDI is a disaster of a measure to understand for anyone who s not a statistician Klugman explained it well to me but I m going to have a bitch of a time explaining it in my article How do you foresee that one shifting aid BBC s take is interesting And odd I didn t get that pitch either from the report s author and I also find the conclusion strange generally In fact the MPI suggests to me the opposite in many places all that aid and we can still see how poor people are in many of the same areas that aid delivery is happening Your point on the politics context though is well taken glad you reiterated Thanks for the offer to connect me to the HDR folks I think I have most what I need from there in my interview with Klugman but I appreciate it Reply Christopher says November 6 2010 at 10 19 am Having moved from the Global HDR to national reports I m currently drafting the 1st Sudan HDR the HDI increasingly looks like a clumsy indicator mostly helpful to gauge national level average trends This I think makes it useful primarily for NY DC London based aid agencies on deciding overall aid allocations looking out at a big bad world needing prioritization The inequality adjusted index takes that peak under the cover of the national level aggregates to say which areas of human development education say in that country are falling behind and so where national policy can be met with international aid This has potential to raise equity in development across populations on the agenda and help make priorities in specific sectors Sudan s case for instance looks largely like a miracle kinda like the DRC trends the Human Security Report you reviewed earlier this year argues for where mom and children health improve despite violence Taking that national trend apart to say hey not everybody is doing equally well tells a much more realistic story But that complexity in understanding the inequality adjusted HDI you highlight is a huge factor that right
