Community Development Support Project

Community Development Support Project (PADC)

This project promotes the socio-economic development of Cameroon’s poorest rural people, especially women. Its aims are to increase their incomes and improve food security.

The specific objectives of the project are to:

  • build capacity among communities, support agencies, and private and public service providers
  • improve access by the rural poor, including women, to resources, inputs and services
  • promote income-generating activities for the rural poor

The project was designed at the government’s request, to support community empowerment by enabling communities to plan and manage their development under an integrated, participatory process.
