Ethics and justice are central to development issues, but at present, there are no dedicated ethical guidelines for development research. The DSA 2019 Conference "Opening up Development" (Milton Keynes, 19-21 June) is a good oopportunity to start changing this. EADI and DSA are jointly committed to producing such guidelines, and this panel will feed into that process. We look forward to receiving interesting contributions! Sessions will be interactive and participatory.

The Most Detailed Picture to Date of the World’s Poorest People presents the global MPI 2018, a newly revised index based on a short but powerful list of 10 deprivations. It now covers 105 countries in total, which are home to 77 per cent of the world’s population, or 5.7 billion people. Key findings are:

  • 1.3 billion people live in multidimensional poverty.
  • 83% of all multidimensionally poor people in the world live in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
  • Two-thirds of all MPI poor people live in middle-income countries.
  • Half of the multidimensionally poor are children aged 0-17.
  • 85% of MPI poor people live in rural areas.
  • 46% of those who are multidimensionally poor live in severe poverty.
  • In 2015/16, more than 364 million people are still MPI poor in India.
  • In India, 271 million people moved out of poverty in ten years.
