Related areas

Territories Access to transport infrastructure: a problem for P20 (Karimama case)
Most of the interventions of the technical and financial partners takes place in the South of Benin, while the poorest 20% (P20) live in the North
Socio-demographic characteristics of P20
Telephone isolation of certain communities
Not taking into account or low consideration of territorial information (provided by municipalities)
Data Non-use of data from the Integrated Modular Household Living Conditions Survey (EMICoV) or the Harmonized Household Living Conditions Survey (HCVM) on consumption
Lack of recent data
What is the link between the data from this study and the development plans of the municipalities concerned?
Data on access to safe drinking water
The data dates back to 2015: why not exploit recent data?
What do these figures mean in practice for the situation of the people concerned? How many times do they eat a day? Etc.
More data on children living in families that are among the poorest
What are the most numerous social groups among P20s?
Lack of use of data of global analysis of vulnerability, food security and nutrition
P20 approach No appropriation or understanding on the part of the P20
Lack of presentation of methodological approach
Ethnicity among poverty factors
Definition of more accurate P20s for better understanding
Study methodology
The P20 analysis criteria
What about the use of the results presented?
Level of involvement of the P20 in development planning
Why only use income, nutrition and marital status as criteria? Some interesting aspects, such as access to water and electricity, are not taken into account.
Others Wouldn't it be interesting if the numbers assigned during the digitisation of civil registration records were the same as for the Population Identification administrative Census (RAVIP)? (Kandi)
Restriction of assessment on health and education (low in other areas)
In which family situations are we most likely to belong to the poorest 20%? (foyer (single-parent home run by a woman, a family with more than four children, etc.))

  • Better explain methodological steps
  • Consider EMICoV/EHCVM data
