Targeting Criteria Guidelines for Cash-Based Interventions (CBI)
Introduction: The Cash Working Group (CWG) of Cox’s Bazar supports implementing partners for smooth implementation of cash and market-based programming. It was observed that different agencies set up targeting criteria for CBI – based on their own/organizational perspectives. Some agencies don’t have any set criteria and select beneficiaries through a team discussion or and without consultation with other stakeholders. Therefore, upon many agencies request some of the CWG members formed a Taskforce to work on harmonizing targeting criteria for different modalities of the cash-based interventions.
Objectives: The main objective of the Targeting Taskforce is to develop a harmonized, simple and inclusive targeting guideline to support the identification of beneficiaries (both host and Rohingya communities); it will be used by different agencies working in Cox’s Bazar.
