In 2015, the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda published the Rwanda Poverty Profile Report 2013/2014,which provided a detailed portrait of the extent and nature of poverty in the country, based on informationcollected by an integrated household living conditions survey (EICV4) undertaken between October 2013 and
In this report, we explore the characteristics of poor and potentially vulnerable households in Rwanda, and we analyse what types of household use the social protection programmes, especially the VUP and their experiences of doing so. Section 2 discusses the nature of vulnerability in the country. Section 3 presents the findings from the VUP.
Rwanda is to conduct the fourth Integrated Household Living Conditions Survey (EICV 4) that is slated to start in May this year.
