According to Nigeria’s 2022 Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), about 63 percent of Nigerians (133 million people) experience poverty when factors such as employment instability, access to education, living conditions, and health are taken into account. These statistics highlight that the work of poverty alleviation requires an intersectional approach to both financial and social inclusion.

As part of IPA’s work of evidence-based generation, IPA Nigeria will be hosting the Nigeria Evidence Summit on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, in Abuja. This event serves as a platform to share and discuss robust evidence that can inform the policies and programs of the current administration in social protection, education, and financial inclusion. Through this summit, IPA will share the latest research findings and evidence with policymakers and decision-makers in Nigeria to showcase effective approaches as a first step toward supporting the new administration with high-quality data and evidence in priority sectors.
