Living Income Webinar 13: Measuring income - What income? For what purpose?

Webinar delivered on 24th May 2017

Sustainable livelihoods are the goal of countless initiatives, leaving many wondering if and how companies and organizations can effectively measure income gains and improvements beyond adoption of good agricultural practices.

This webinar focuses on approaches to identifying and measuring incomes, commencing with a summary of discussions from a recent event on income measurement at the Sustainable Food Lab. We also have a guest speaker, Julie Peachey, from Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), provides an overview and update on the Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI); a poverty measurement tool.

Furthermore Manfred Borer, Country Director of SwissContact, presents on how the foundation has used the PPI in their data collection for their country-wide Sustainable Cocoa Production Programme in Indonesia. He discusses the value PPI has provided in tracking poverty results in different regions, and how it is complemented by the other metrics used in the program.
