Targeting Effectiveness of CFPR/TUP in Scale-up Environment
Effective targeting is a hallmark of the BRACâ€™s CFPR/TUP programme. Like many other targeted programmes, CFPR/TUP combines a number of targeting methods. Launching in 2002, his programme has scaled up in 2005. Despite this scaling up, success in targeting has been maintained. Using poverty assessment tool, developed by CGAP, it was observed that about three quarters of the beneficiaries of this programme belong to the poorest quartile. his is a commendable achievement when compared to other targeted programmes. The success was achieved not only by adopting appropriate tools of targeting but also by implementing them igorously. Community-based wealth ranking was found to be crucial in achieving high level of aggregate accuracy.[Working Paper No. 8]
