Dabieshan Area Poverty Reduction Programme (DAPRP)

The aim of this programme is to support innovative and diversified development modules in eight poor counties in Xinyang Prefecture, located in Hunan Province, east-central China. The objective is to increase incomes and reduce poverty in poor farm households, including very poor and vulnerable low-income families, in a sustainable manner that also promotes gender equality.

The programme works to strengthen agricultural support services so that participants have better access to knowledge that can improve their capacity to adopt improved technology. It supports the development of private farmers' cooperatives and ensures that their membership includes poor producers, who benefit from improved access to inputs and markets.

The programme focuses on three main areas:

  • Agricultural development and market access, linking poor women and men with sustainable production technologies, know-how, investment support and information
  • Strategic support to very poor people, improving their access to community infrastructure and services, and increasing their integration into agricultural production and markets
  • Support for village-level participatory planning.
