Abstract

Many countries in the UNESCAP region have targeted poverty reduction programmes, which provide income generation and employment opportunities for the poor. It is important that the impact of these programmes be evaluated to determine their success in terms of achieving their objectives. Most of the targeted poverty reduction programmes are designed and funded at the macro level but implemented at the micro level through local-level officials. The Poverty and Development Division prepared a manual for evaluating the impact of targeted poverty reduction programmes at local level and build capacities of local-level officials of government and NGOs for undertaking this task. The manual was presented at national workshops in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia and the Philippines. Based on feedback from these national workshops, the manual has been substantially revised and it contains achievement indicators for income change, targeting, poverty reduction, efficiency in programme delivery, and financial sustainability of the programme. Using these achievement indicators, the manual provides guidelines on how to evaluate the impact of income and employment generating poverty reduction programmes.
