Measuring Social Progress, Not Wealth: Why the Social Progress Index has become an invaluable tool for development in Latin America

The Social Progress Index (SPI) was created to make the concept of social progress as important as economic growth in both measuring and guiding development. By aggregating a series of social and environmental indicators, the SPI captures three dimensions of social progress:  Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing, and Opportunity. Debuted globally in 2013, the SPI is now in use by governments, civil society, and the private sector from Mexico to Brazil. Join our panel of experts to explore why the SPI has been used in countries and communities throughout the Americas and discuss its potential future impact on the region.
