Dear Edouard,
You might be interested to know that the CGAP-Ford Foundation Graduation Program is a global effort to understand how safety nets, livelihoods and access to finance can be sequenced to create sustainable pathways for the poorest out of extreme poverty, adapting a method originally developed by BRAC in Bangladesh. Since 2006, the Graduation Program has partnered with local organizations and governments to adapt the approach in 10 pilot projects in eight countries. A unique element of the Graduation Program is that a robust learning and evaluation agenda, including qualitative research and randomized control evaluations (such as the one referred to in the above blog post), is embedded in all the pilot sites. The Graduation Program is committed to sharing lessons on implementation and results of research through an active Community of Practice of practitioners, policymakers, funders, and researchers dedicated to dramatically scaling up solutions that help end extreme poverty.
