Identification of poor households IDPoor
The project is part of the larger GIZ "Identification of Poor Households (IDPoor)" program which is implemented together with the Cambodian Ministry of Planning since 2006. This measure in the wider social protection efforts of GIZ faciliates a review and optimisation of the IDPoor approach. IDPoor is a targeting mechanism for the identification of poor households using interviews coupled with a significant local participatory element. Through the identification, poorer households are provided an active IDPoor Equity Card which entitles them to access various social and pro-poor services in Cambodia. The data collected by IDPoor is used for targeting by a large number of projects and programs of the government as well as non-governmental organisations.
