The Rationale for ex ante Poverty Impact Assessment
Abstract:Ex ante Poverty impact assessment is a process enabling donors to inform themselves, and their partner countries, of the expected intended and unintended consequences of donor interventions. It also provides an assessment of the well‐being of different social groups, focusing on poor and vulnerable people. A multi‐dimensional approach to poverty is taken as defined by the OECD/DAC Guidelines on Poverty Reduction and engrained in the MDGs. The actual application process may vary from a quick review to a more comprehensive analysis.
