Full title:
Household Survey for Poverty Classification in the City of Luanda, Angola

UDA Consulting will conduct the comprehensive household-level survey in the city of Luanda that will allow for a more precise classification of households by poverty level. The resulting poverty classifications will be used, to calibrate and test an innovative approach to develop exceptionally granular poverty maps using high-resolution satellite imagery and machine-learning techniques. The resulting poverty maps will allow Luanda’s water utility company to provide more effective water services through the better targeting of subsidies to the households that most require such assistance.
