Why is measurement so important?

Measuring poverty and related variables allows organizations to better understand who their clients are and what characterizes their needs.  Organizations can use this increased client relationship to, among other things, develop products, services, and delivery channels that address the specific needs of certain client groups, monitor outreach to the poor,  track changes in client’s, lives and evaluate projects and policy interventions geared to poor people. Learn how you can help support the growing use of viable and reliable poverty measurement tools to help guide the industry in best reading and supporting progress toward helping 100 million of the world's poorest families lift themselves out of extreme poverty.
