Mapping of targeting and prioritization approaches

Last updated:

Acknowledging the challenges of targeting and prioritisation, in 2022 UNHCR conducted a mapping of targeting and prioritization approaches, to better understand the range of targeting practices used within the organization and by other humanitarian and development actors when delivering assistance to affected people. By providing examples of current targeting practice, learning and trends, the intention is to support UNHCR staff to navigate the complexities of the targeting and prioritisation process in the contexts in which they work.

Targeting approaches were reviewed in detail and categorised according to a range of factors, such as context, groups of people affected, size of response, type of assistance and targeting approach used, in order to identify the targeting practices and trends described here.

Short case studies have been developed which provide more details of the targeting approaches adopted in a wide range of contexts.
