The objective of this project is to build the
evidence base on targeting options to identify and assist vulnerable
households, including through the Haitian Deprivation and Vulnerability
Index, with an emphasis on rural post-disaster contexts and urban settings
not included in the social registry.Main activities include: Assess the targeting accuracy of the Haitian Deprivation and Vulnerability Index; Target and prioritize rural cash transfer beneficiaries in disaster response contexts in the
department of Grande Anse; and Compile relevant sources of information to develop a vulnerability indicator for urban areas in the
Metropolitan Port-au-Prince.Note that following the earthquake in August 2021 activity 1 was modified to focus on an analysis of household data collected in the earthquake area to inform shock responsive targeting.
