dc.description.abstract The briefing presents levels of multidimensional poverty in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region according to the Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI, 2020). The MPI reflects deprivations of those unable to reach minimum standards in health, education and income. Results show that the experience of acute poverty in LAC is heterogeneous. In terms of population groups, children and older adults are still most likely to live in poverty. The COVID-19 pandemic will reverse progress in poverty reduction worldwide, with expected setbacks of three to nine years. Haiti, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua have the largest percentage of populations who are at risk or high risk from the pandemic. en
