This Note chronicles the Philippine’s experience in undertaking a national household targeting system—Listahanan—which has had two rounds of implementation since developed in 2007. Besides the main operational features of the system, the data used, enhancements made in the 2015 round, the Note also highlights the process as well as key decisions that were made in selecting the final technical design of both rounds that allow the system to identify and locate poor households across the Philippines. It offers some recommendations on how the Philippine targeting system can maintain its functionality and relevance as it matures. This Note contributes to the body of global knowledge on establishing effective targeting systems that other countries can use as a resource.
