Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Livelihoods
What is this project about
With a mandate to reduce poverty, the project seeks to provide some of the poorest communities with the resources (skills, financing, inputs, starter-kits etc) to enable them to leverage local resources and endowments for sustainable income generation. Capacity building support is also provided to national and sub-national institutions and structures to ensure strong design and implementation of pro-poor policies.
‘The project seeks to address poverty at both upstream and downstream level, using 4 mutually reinforcing pillars: Rural livelihoods support; business development support for innovative youth; support for subnational and community based organisations and structures; and support for policy and national structures.
- Strengthen livelihoods through access to increased economic opportunities
- Innovation support for youth
- Strengthen sub-national capacities to implement pro-poor interventions
- Strengthen central capacities to design ad implement pro-poor national and local development strategies and policies
