Measurement of poverty in OIC Member Countries is a 2015 publication, issued by Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
Poverty is a complicated and multi-dimensional phenomenon that goes back beyond the monetary aspects. In fact, it is associated with poor economies, poor human resources, poor social services provision and poor policies to tackle the challenges facing human and socio-economic development.
Poverty also arises when people lack access to adequate civic amenities like education and health services. Therefore, the status, the determinants, and the policy measures required to eradicate poverty would by definition vary from one country to another.
