BRAC’s Ultra Poor Graduation Initiative was contracted in December of 2018 to fulfill evaluation activities and is on track to execute the contract by May of 2019. The evaluation is divided into four phases over a 17-week period: Planning and Design (Inception); Primary and Secondary Data Collection; Data Analysis, Validation of Findings and Reporting; and Dissemination. To date, the consultancy team has completed the inception phase, including desk research, evaluation planning, sector sampling, a draft methodology guide outlining key research questions and data collection tools. The team has also initiated primary and secondary data collection activities with a field mission scheduled for February 2019. Dissemination of evaluation findings and recommendations to key stakeholders will take place in June of 2019.

In support of the Rwandan Government’s Vision 2020 targets and EDPRS 2 policy commitments relating to supporting sustainable graduation from extreme poverty, MINALOC approved implementation of a new initiative known as the ‘Minimum Package for Graduation’ in September 2015. The Minimum Package was intended to deliver a defined package of core social protection services and complementary interventions with a view to strengthening household productivity and resilience. Thirty sectors (one in each district of Rwanda) were selected to participate in a three-year pilot running from fiscal year 2015/16 to fiscal year 2017/18. As the pilot phase comes to a close, LODA, with support from UNICEF, has commissioned a process evaluation of the initiative with a view to informing future scale-up activities.
