Created in partnership between the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights and the international movement ATD Fourth World, the tool for the Inclusive and Deliberative Elaboration & Evaluation of Policies (IDEEP) aims to guide decision-makers to ensure strong participation in the design, implementation and assessment of projects or policies that have impacts on people in poverty, thus ensuring that the various dimensions of poverty, including those that are “hidden”, are taken into account and addressed.

The IDEEP requires processes to be deeply participatory and deliberative. It aims to ensure the direct and meaningful involvement of persons experiencing poverty, who exchange ideas and experiences with other key actors in view of arriving at a common set of strategies

The guidelines included in the IDEEP are not intended to replace existing policy assessment tools — whether sustainability impact assessments or social impact assessments relying on econometric tools, or human rights impact assessments relying on the normative framework of human rights. Instead, the aim is to complement them, to offer a different perspective by providing a reliable, qualitative, and deliberative approach, allowing to capture and harness the lived experience of persons in poverty in order to improve policymaking.
