The second phase of the Chars Livelihoods Programme or CLP-2 (2010-2016), aims to improve the livelihoods, incomes and food security of up to one million extremely poor people living on island chars in the north west of Bangladesh. From the chars population, CLP-2 will target 67,000 of the poorest households (termed core participant households or CPHHs), the extreme poor, who will receive an integrated package of support. This briefing discusses the selection criteria used to choose extreme poor households for inclusion, and what criteria are used to determine when households 'graduate' out of extreme poverty.
