In the context of PEP's long-term partnership agreement to support UNICEF's work on social policy and social protection reform in the MENA region, a group of PEP experts (from the PEP North American Office at Université Laval) provided an intensive training course on the use and application of cutting-edge methodologies to measure child poverty and inequality in a multidimensional sense. The course was held in Cairo (Egypt) from March 9 to 15, 2013. 
Participants were selected by UNICEF Offices in Middle-East and North African countries, as strategic representatives of decision-makers and government partners who can help influence and implement policies in favour of child welfare in the region.

The course provided these national experts with hands-on training to work on conceptual and methodological issues related to child poverty and inequity, as well as to enhance their analytical skills, emphasizing how a focus on children can strengthen existing monetary and multidimensional approaches to poverty measurement.
