The TA will synthesize the lessons learned from the experiences of (i) the East-West partnerships for poverty reduction, (ii) VLD, for decision-making on use of resource allocations in the community, with NGO support, and (iii) new microcredit systems. The TA will use the results to suggest options for practical and concrete blending of the methods for field application in the Western provinces. The TA will involve consideration of lessons already learned, discussions with East-West pairs regarding what has worked and how they expect to continue their partnerships, a definition of a narrow range of workable poverty-reduction project options using the three modalities, and definition of a randomized evaluation process that can be used to monitor results and provide feedback for further refinement.
