UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 05 National Consultants for Developing and piloting the (i) tools, (ii) process guideline and (iii) software for self-registration and management of multidimensional poverty in Vietnam for 2021-2025 period.
Vietnam has been very successful in economic growth and poverty reduction during the recent decades. However, the success in monetary poverty reduction and economic growth is not automatically translated into a success in multidimensional poverty reduction. Recognizing this issue, the Government of Vietnam (GoV) has decided to adopt a multidimensional approach to poverty measurement in the coming period 2016-2020. (Decision No 1614/QĐ-TTg dated 15/9/2015). Viet Nam - one of the first pioneering countries in Asia and Pacific Region to adopt the MDP approach to eliminate poverty in all its dimensions – set the national average multidimensional poverty reduction target of 1.5% per annum and 2-4% in mountainous ethnic minority areas, in the country’s five-year Socio-Economic Development Plan (2016-2020). The multidimensional poverty measurements, including both income and non-monetary dimensions such as housing, assess to water and sanitation, education and health services and social and health insurance, have been used for designing the National Target Program for Sustainable Poverty Reduction (NTPSPR, 2016-2020) and identifying the poor households that are eligible for the Program support, poverty reduction and social assistance policies.
The objectives of this assignment are to enhance the timeliness and transparency of the identification, verification and management of MDP poor households/persons, contributing to better formulation, implementation of multi-dimensional poverty reduction programs and social protection schemes, ensuring no one is left behind in the period 2021 – 2025.
