The Community and Social Development Project (CSDP) is a joint Federal Government, State and World Bank Project, it is a scaled up project of the pilot Community - Based Poverty Reduction Project (CPRP) and Local Empowerment and Environmental Management Project (LEEMP). In Yobe State CPRP was piloted from year 2001 to 2008 during which 838 micro projects worth ₦1.7 Billion were executed, covering sectors like water and sanitation, education, health e.t.c. These projects were at closure in March 2009 benefitting about 1.4 Million people across the State.
Following the success of CPRP and LEEMP in delivering social services to the poor people, CSDP came up as a scaled up project. CSDP is therefore an intervention built on the CPRP and LEEMP successes and structures to effectively target socio – economic and natural resources infrastructure services at the community level as well as improved Local Government Council responsibility to service delivery.
