Northern Region Poverty Reduction Programme

Northern Region Poverty-Reduction Programme

NORPREP is designed to strengthen government institutions and promote a more participatory approach to local development. The programme provides support through a flexible community development fund.

Poor rural people who participate are encouraged to analyse their needs and the constraints they face, and to identify possible opportunities and demand. The programme supports training for self-management and places strong emphasis on cost-sharing by those who benefit.

The programme focuses on:

•    Community awareness
•    Empowerment and capacity-building
•    Sustainable agricultural development
•    Rural microenterprise and financial support services
•    Village-level community infrastructure
