On Wednesday 28 September 2022 Giulia Berletta, Reseach Assistant at the University of Copenhagen, will present her recent study on multidimensional poverty in conflict-torn Cabo Delgado.

The seminar is part of the CEEG Seminar Series, organized under the Inclusive growth in Mozambique (IGM) programme. The seminars offer a forum to share and discuss ongoing research on topics related to the work of the IGM programme and to foster a culture of research at the faculty and at UEM in general.

The series takes place at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Eduardo Mondlane (UEM). It is a public event open to everyone. The presentation will be given in Portuguese.

About the study

Can night-time lights inform research and facilitate impact assessment in conflict areas? This study assesses the usefulness of night-time light (NTL) data for research in conflict-thorn areas and uses night-time radiance as a proxy of violent conflict to estimate changes in multidimensional poverty in Cabo Delgado.
