IDENTIFICATION OF POOR HOUSEHOLDS PROGRAMME IN OSUN, NIGERIA
The Programme provides regularly updated information on poor households to a large number of Government and non-governmental agencies to help them target services and assistance to the poorest and most vulnerable households. These agencies can also use the register of poor households to target poorer communities, according to their relative poverty levels. This information must not be used for commercial purposes or for purposes that are not intended to benefit these poor households.
The main objectives of the data are to reduce duplication of effort and resources by different institutions and organisations in identifying their target groups for various poverty reduction interventions, and to ensure that assistance is provided to those households who most need it. When your institution or organisation uses this data for targeting services and assistance to poor households, local authorities and local populations will also more easily accept your selection of beneficiaries , because the Lists of Poor Households have already been approved and accepted by them in the participatory identification process that was conducted.
