ASPIRES Vulnerability Assessment Handbook for Economic Strengthening Projects

Organization(s):

Institutional Sponsor: 
United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

This handbook will assist practitioners and specialists in monitoring and evaluation in the selection of vulnerability assessment approaches for economic strengthening interventions. The focus is on programs for orphans and vulnerable children supported by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), where economic strengthening is used to increase resilience to negative HIV-related outcomes for children. The handbook is intended primarily for development programs in relatively stable contexts rather than emergency relief work.
