Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, there are grounds for concern that developing countries will be grappling in the coming years with severe economic crises alongside public health challenges. The poverty challenge may become less one of enhancing the poverty impact of economic growth, and more one of charting strategies to prevent poverty from rising precipitously in the face of severe economic downturns. An adjusted orientation of poverty studies would appear warranted, one that emphasizes questions relating to poverty dynamics and vulnerability - in terms of exposure to health risks, as well as exposure to the consequences of economic downturn. This session starts with an introduction to the use of synthetic panels in coming to grips with these issues and illustrates the approach with three country case studies on India, Ethiopia and Tanzania, elaborated under the FCDO funded Data and Evidence to end Extreme Poverty (DEEP) project
