Enhancing Knowledge for Renewed Policies against Poverty (NOPOOR)
NOPOOR is a large scale project funded by the EU commission through the FP7 framework. It aims at providing new and specific knowledge on several dimensions related to poverty. Afrilux intervenes more specifically on two aspects of this large project. First of all, we lead a work package whose objective is to build a data warehouse, to enhance data exchange during the project. Secondly, we also contribute to scientific production on different issues. One is on the reassessment of the usual concept of poverty in order to revise the MDG, notably the first target of poverty eradication, and to improve and implement methods to better measure multidimensional poverty. Another thematic where our contribution is significant is on the analysis of the impact of social network on labor market outcomes. Finally we will also analyze the differential impact of climate change on depletion of natural resources and food security in Malian rural areas.
