Presents and compares a large selection of poverty and food-security mapping methodologies in use. The choice of a poverty-mapping methodology depends on a number of logical and legitimate considerations, such as the objectives of the poverty mapping exercise, philosophical views on poverty, limits on data and analytical capacity, and cost.

"Outcome Mapping provides not only a guide to essential evaluation map-making, but also a guide to learning and increased effectiveness, and affirmation that being attentive along the journey is as important as, and critical to, arriving at a destination." - Michael Quinn Patton More and more, development organizations are under pressure to demonstrate that their programs result in significant and lasting changes in the well-being of their intended beneficiaries. However, such "impacts" are often the product of a confluence of events for which no single agency or group of agencies can realisti

Poverty mapping in developing countries is used to identify ways to improve living standards and, until now, methods have been generally based on econometric models which do not take into account the spatial dependence that may exist in human societies, with regard to income distribution. This report uses spatial regression techniques to model more accurately the distribution of poverty across regions in Ecuador.

Describes a set of mappings which will enable interworking between systems operating the CCITT X.400 (1988) Recommendations on Message Handling Systems / ISO IEC 10021 Message Oriented Text Interchange Systems (MOTIS( [CCITT/ISO88a], and systems using the RFC 822 mail protocol [Crocker82a] or protocols derived from RFC 822. Aims to maximize the services offered across the boundary, whilst not requiring unduly complex mappings. Specifies a mapping between two protocols.
