However, during the period of the programme there was a discourse shift from the static threshold metaphor of ‘graduation’ which says little about sustainability towards the more dynamic and significant notion of ‘resilience’.So, what is the experience of being extreme poor? Drawing on qualitative data from life histories and tracking studies in EEP-Shiree3, it is clear that there are different routes to becoming extreme poor, which then affect that experience.
