THE INDIVIDUAL DEPRIVATION MEASURE
The Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) Program is a research partnership between Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Australian National University (ANU) and IWDA, aimed at changing the way global poverty is measured in order to be more inclusive, gender-sensitive, and to reveal inequality. This includes undertaking IDM studies to collect data (Nepal and Fiji to date, and another three or four countries before 2020), including with marginalised populations within these countries. The IDM Program is organised around four pillars: Measure, Data, Technology and Communications.
