The primary objective of this analysis is to inform the technical design of the ESSN programme in 2019 and beyond, and to support evidence-based decision making for the selection of eligible households. The analysis builds upon a large amount of data collected through the ESSN and aims to answer core vulnerability questions, to provide evidence to refine the targeting criteria used, and to estimate how many refugee households have the potential to ‘graduate’ into livelihoods programming.
