Overview: This handbook was developed by the ASPIRES project to assist practitioners and M&E specialists to select vulnerability assessment approaches for economic strengthening (ES) interventions, particularly those integrated into the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) programs for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).1 Most approaches featured are meant for development projects in relatively stable contexts, rather than emergency relief work. There are many frameworks and toolkits available that were not included in this guide, including those focused on food security, disaster risk management, or emergency relief. (p. 6)
