The Author and / or AUTHORS



This article is a review of the metrics options available to achieve the Sustainable
Development Goal 1 contained in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
adopted by the UN in 2015. The Agenda should be truly universal and engage all
countries, not just the so-called developing countries. Since the second target of
the Agenda proposes to “reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women
and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national
definitions” the article provides an overview of existing experiences on measuring
multidimensional poverty including Latin America and Europe. Starting from the
common methodology of Alkire and Foster to overcome some of the limitations of
traditional monetary poverty line, it is evident that there is a timely flexibility of choice in dimensions, thresholds, weights and cut dividing line between poor and non-poor.
