Sectorial area of intervention and policy objectives: Inclusive economic growth for poverty eradication

  • Create opportunities for decent jobs and secure livelihoods.
  • Create better government policies and fair and accountable public institutions.
  • Promote inclusive and sustainable business practices

Joint programme summary:

The general objective of the Joint Programme (JP) is to contribute to food security, and to fight against poverty and inequalities in the communities and among vulnerable groups, including women and youth, in San Pedro region, located in the south-west of Cote d’Ivoire. Specifically, the JP aims to:

 

  • Create economic and job opportunities for the target groups, through productive income generating activity development and local entrepreneurship promotion;
  • Ensure food security and improve nutrition in the poorest households;
  • Increase access for vulnerable groups to information on their rights and legal assistance for better social and economic integration.

 

To achieve these objectives, the JP will provide direct technical and financial support to target groups (economic interest groups, women and youth start-up) to assist them in the development of economic activities. This support is mainly for production, processing and/or marketing capacity strengthening of beneficiaries involved in agricultural and agropastoral activities, craft industry and services. The programme will be also focused on improving population access to basic economic infrastructures, law and justice. Furthermore, emphasis will be placed on rehabilitation of degraded forests into a dynamic of environmental preservation.

Emphasis will be placed on the organization, training and mentoring of the beneficiaries, evaluation of opportunities and promoting promising sectors, provision of inputs (small farm equipment, seed, fertilizer, pesticides) and construction/rehabilitation of economic infrastructure (small units of production or processing centers or grouping of points of sale, rural tracks and roads etc.). The JP will encourage the development of value chains, the mobilization of endogenous resources and the beneficiaries will take ownership of the initiatives. Also, it will support the offer of legal aid service through legal clinic responsible for information campaigns and raise awareness of the rights, counseling and legal assistance, with priority attention to women and children. In addition, the mobilization efforts of other partners in the programme will be harnessed to increase the resources and the number of beneficiaries to support.

The implementation of this programme will have a direct impact on job creation and increase household incomes especially for the youths and women who are most affected by unemployment

and social exclusion in the region. Additionally, the increase in production and assets of poor households will contribute to the strengthening of their means of livelihood and food security. The income derived from the production, processing and marketing will contribute to the development of the local economy and alleviate child hunger and under nutrition and promote sustainable and resilient livelihoods for vulnerable households of the San Pedro region. The access of populations, in the target areas, to information on their rights and individualized legal support, will increase their capacity to fight for their rights in the settlement of disputes and to formalize their situation, both in the field of the economic and private spheres, including in particular the land tenure, access to identity documents and administration.

An effective coordination and monitoring/evaluation mechanism will be established in the field with the involvement of local partners to support the implementation and to ensure the long term sustainability of the interventions.
