Assessment of the Protecting Livelihoods in Crisis (PLIC) Programme

According to most development indicators, the remote hill and mountain districts of Nepal’s Mid- and Far Western Development Regions are amongst the country’s poorest, with widespread food insufficiency and low-quality basic services. In addition, these areas have been severely affected by the Maoist insurgency.
In mid-2003, at the request of the Government of Nepal, UNICEF and the World Food Programme (WFP) jointly1 initiated the Quick Impact Programme (QIP) with the aim of improving basic services for vulnerable populations in 71 conflict-affected Village Development Committees (VDCs) of nine severely conflict-affected districts (Bajhang, Bajura, Dolpa, Humla, Jajarkot, Jumla, Kalikot, Mugu and Rukum). Initially, the QIP was viewed as a relief programme with more ‘hardware’ than ‘software’ activities. However, it has gradually evolved, with a balance of both relief and development work, building on UNICEF’s experiences with Decentralized Action for Children and Women (DACAW).
Although WFP support for the QIP was suspended in November 2003, UNICEF continued with the
programme and, in March 2004 after UNICEF’s Mid-Term Review, the QIP was formally adopted as UNICEF’s strategy for working in conflict-affected districts where the service delivery mechanism of the government was unable to functional fully. It was mainstreamed into DACAW at that time. In 2005, as part of the UN’s Consolidated Appeals Process, UNICEF and the WFP proposed a new joint programme entitled Protecting Livelihoods in Crisis (PLIC) as a continuation of the QIP. PLIC started in January 2006, with an initial duration of one year. It remained an integral part of DACAW, and operated in the same nine districts as the QIP. In addition, the WFP implemented its components of PLIC (without UNICEF support) in 10 additional districts.
PLIC has two main thematic areas—education and health—with seven key elements: quality
education; child health; maternal health; child nutrition; child protection; parenting orientation; and water supply and sanitation. It is implemented through two national partner NGOs: Development Project Service Centre (DEPROSC) and Support Activities for Poor Producers of Nepal (SAPPROS). DEPROSC is responsible for Humla, Dolpa, Rukum, Jajarkot, Jumla and Kalikot, and SAPROS is responsible for Bajhang, Bajura and Mugu.
