Inaugural IDM Conference, 7 – 9 April 2020

Following four years of global research and refinement, the Individual Deprivation Measure’s important findings will be released in April next year at our inaugural conference, Measure what Matters: data to leave no one behind.

It will bring together global thinkers and practitioners to showcase the value of gender sensitive data collected at the individual level. We will highlight global efforts to close the gender data gap and leave no one behind.

The conference will run from 7 – 9 April 2020 at The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.

The program is currently under development, and further details including keynote speakers and registration information will be updated on this page.

What is the IDM?

The Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) is a new, gender-sensitive measure of multidimensional poverty. It is a ground-breaking measure developed to assess deprivation at the individual level, overcoming limitations of current approaches that measure poverty at the household level.

It is a partnership between the Australian National University and the International Women’s Development Agency with strategic support from the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
