President’s Report Proposed Grant To Nepal For The Poverty Alleviation Fund Project – Phase II
PDF File Size: 263 KB | Download   
The Poverty Alleviation Fund was launched as a community-driven development instrument for addressing the interrelated problems of rural poverty and social exclusion. In April 2004, the International Development Association (IDA) provided a grant of US$15 million to finance the Poverty Alleviation Fund Project – Phase I (PAF I). PAF I was designed as a pilot, operating in six districts that were chosen on the basis of their Human Development Index and geographic location (i.e. in hills, mountains and the terai), and whether they were conflict-affected areas. Once the initial organizational phase of the PAF was complete, the implementation pace accelerated rapidly in response to greater than anticipated – and constantly growing demands from rural communities. Following the peace process and the agreements reached among the political parties, there is a new commitment to address inequality and poverty in the country. A set of community-based programmes forms the centre of the effort to rapidly extend developmental reach to the poorer remote areas of Nepal. Among these programmes, the PAF is seen as especially important because of its success to date in effectively targeting poor communities and the marginalized within them, improving access to basic services and increasing incomes. The proposed project will use the same targeting mechanisms and the same beneficiary profiles as PAF I, but will extend its scope nationally in a phased manner, increasing by 15 districts each year.
