Operationalising the Poverty Focus for Swiss Development Cooperation-Bangladesh
MetadataShow full item record
This note provides a short guide on how the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation in Bangladesh (SDC-B) conceptualises, targets, monitors and measures poverty. It summarises the results of a 2016 exercise undertaken by SDC in Bangladesh with their partners to reconsider and operationalise the poverty focus of their work. The aim of the exercise was for SDC-B and partners to arrive at a shared understanding of poverty in Bangladesh, move towards agreed measures and methodologies for identifying people to work with, and to establish agreed meanings and measures of the changes in their lives to be measured.
