The Identification of Poor Households (IDPoor) mechanism, established in 2006 within the Ministry of Planning (MOP), is part of the Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia’s ongoing efforts to reduce poverty and support socioeconomic development throughout the country. Being the Government’s mandatory standard tool for targeting pro-poor measures in the country, the programme provides regularly updated information on poor and vulnerable households to a large number of Government and non-governmental agencies to help them target services and assistance to the poorest and most vulnerable persons. 

For this overarching purpose, access to the IDPoor platform requires the storage of personal data. MOP-IDPoor takes the protection of personal data very seriously. This declaration explains what personal data is stored and what it is used for.

MOP runs three distinct online systems with regards to the IDPoor mechanism. The IDPoor website provides information on the IDPoor mechanism. The IDPoor Web system provides access to the IDPoor Management Information System (MIS), with various types of user accounts.
