A highly intensive registration exercise was carried out between November 2012 to May 2013 in which approximately 374,000 were registered in the four counties of Turkana, Marsabit, Wajir and Mandera.Registration was carried out by several INGOs: CARE in Marsabit, Oxfam in Turkana North and Central, World Vision in Turkana South and East, Save the Children UK in Mandera and in partnership with WASDA and ALDEF in Wajir. Registration was undertaken by sub-location where two major activities took place that is:
- A community based targeting (CBT) / wealth ranking exercise
- Individual household registration on MIS
Data collected from the households will be also be used by Government and other agencies involved in drought intervention and other development programmes targeting the four counties.
HSNP2 used a selection criteria that was agreed by the Government and the key stakeholders. The data you provided was used to generate the list of beneficiaries that reflected the socio-economic status of your household.The information provided by each household at registration was used to generate a wealth score for every household. This was combined with communities’ wealth ranking exercises to develop a wealth ranking across all counties. Some parts of certain Counties are poorer than others hence the reason why some areas were allocated more beneficiaries than others.
The overall number of beneficiaries for each county was calculated using a modified Government’s standard approach, the County Resource Allocation (CRA). This provides 25% equally with the rest allocated according to population and poverty levels (based on national statistics).
HSNP2 Registration and targeting lessons learnt
DFID commissioned a study on HSNP2 Registration and targeting with the three core objectives:
- To critically understand the process, methodology and results of a) registration and b) targeting for HSNP 2.
- To understand the perspectives and perceptions of different stakeholders.
- To learn lessons, in particular on political economy that can inform the on-going implementation of HSNP2 and the design of the re-registration process planned for 2015/16.
