The CSH is involved in the project NOPOOR – Enhancing Knowledge for Renewed Policies against Poverty
NOPOOR aims to produce new and specific knowledge on poverty using comparative quantitative and qualitative analysis conducted by research institutions from the global North and South working in close cooperation and in consultation with national institutes of statistics. It will draw relevant theoretical and practical lessons from these studies. Civil society organizations will also be involved in NOPOOR. In order to improve knowledge of the different dimensions of poverty, NOPOOR will contribute to the development of new data collection methods in order to enable a more detailed understanding of poverty mechanisms from a dynamic and forward-looking point of view. NOPOOR will also contribute to the designing of new policies that could be implemented to tackle poverty with the active participation of stakeholders and policymakers in the perspective of extension of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of the United Nations.
This project (classified FP7) brings together 19 research centers spread over four continents and with a budget of 8 million euros.
