Webinar Recap: Findings from the First Survey of the Poor

On September 6 and 7, 2017, The GlobeScan Foundation hosted two webinars (for two different time zones) to explore initial findings from the Survey of the Poor - the world's first statistically meaningful survey of the poorest of the poor around the world.

The GlobeScan Foundation recently completed a pilot Survey of the Poor in India. Results demonstrate it is possible to survey the poorest of the poor, and also reveal provocative findings that will challenge those working to reduce poverty in India and beyond.

In our first webinar, hosted for an Asian time zone, GlobeScan Foundation President Doug Miller, along with our long-time research partner Yashwant Deshmukh, Founder/Director of Team CVoter in India, presented key findings and their implications for poverty-reduction policies and programs. Ranu Kayastha Bhogal, Director, Policy Research & Campaigns at Oxfam India joined to share her perspectives on these first findings.
