Graduating Strategies for the Ultra-Poor: Evidence from Northern Bangladesh

Graduating Strategies for the Ultra-Poor: Evidence from Northern Bangladesh

by Lukas Rudolph |

The growing evidence on graduation strategies for the ultra-poor, as practiced by NETZ with its project "Income and Food Security for the Ultra-Poor", aims at breaking the poverty trap through a multidimensional approach. This paper reports positive impacts of the project on variable bundles related and unrelated to the project (food security, expenditure, producitve assets, durables, savings). A difference-in-difference approach is used, using the outcomes of ultra-poor eligible for the project as counterfactual. This analysis is extending the working paper "Increasing Food Security by Asset Transfer" by the author below.
