Poverty is a multidimensional concept that has evolved over time. In addition to measures of socioeconomic status (such as income, assets, and educational attainment), emerging definitions of poverty recognize that poverty also results in isolation, voicelessness, and vulnerability. To combat this, the first component of the EQUITY Framework calls for engaging and empowering the poor. This brief explores ways to engage the poor throughout the policy process, using illustrative examples from Guatemala, Kenya, Vietnam, and India.
