Project Description

The project aims to enhance the efficiency of the Guangxi Consolidated Poverty Reduction Program (CPRP) in Targeted Counties. The project objectives are being carried out by two main tasks:

The first is accurately targeting poverty households and villages through the establishment of the National Poverty Registration Systemin 2013. The survey database will provide critical information from the poverty situation of each household or villages.

Secondly, the program hopes to empower counties authorities to fully design, operate, and set their own targets for poverty alleviation by capacity building and support.
