RURAL POVERTY - EKITI CSDP to the Rescue

RURAL POVERTY - EKITI CSDP to the Rescue

With a goal to creating improved access to services for human development

Aug 3, 2020 55 Views 0 Comments FacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogle Plus

Nigeria is one of the poorest countries in the World despite the enormous resources available to her. Presently over 86.9 Million Nigerians live below the poverty line and it is estimated that the percengage of Nigerians living in extreme poverty will increase from 44.2%  to 45% representing a total of about 120 million living under $2 per day by 2030 (World Poverty Clock)

Most of the people especially in the rural areas are characterized by low levels of income and acute deprivation of required social and physical infrastructures. The rural people lack access to basic social amenities such as safe water, electricity, healthcare services, good feeder roads and education facilities among others. In many rural areas of the country, there is a strong link between availability of infrastructures and poverty rates. It is therefore imperative that provisions of infrastructure development lead to poverty reduction through direct or indirect channels. 

Access to health and educational services will also improve the livelihood and living conditions of the people. Availability of transport and reduction of transport cost will encourage agricultural production while provision of electricity will lead to increase economic activities, better access to market opportunities and opening up of new opportunities and employment generation. 

The above background provided the gateway to the establishment of Community and Social Development Projects(CSDP). The project is assisted by the World Bank and co-financed by the Federal Government and the participating states of Abia, Akwa Ibom, Adamawa, Anambra, Bauchi, Bayelsa, Benue, Borno, Cross River, Ebonyi, Edo, Ekiti, Enugu, Gombe, Katsina, Kebbi, Kogi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Niger, Ondo, Osun, Oyo, Plateau, Taraba, Yobe, Kwara, Zamfara and the FCT Abuja.
The overall goal of the CSDP is creating improved access to services for human development, while the Project Development Objective is to sustainably increase access of poor people to social and natural resource infrastructure services.

The Project empowers communities to identify and prioritize their needs, develop, implement and monitor micro - social infrastructural projects, as well as improve LGA responsibility to service delivery to their communities.

The design of CSDP is in line with development priorities of the World Bank and the Nigerian Government, particularly as it relates to poverty reduction, human capacity development and wealth creation. The project adopts Community Driven Development (CDD) as its intervention mechanism. This approach effectively ensures mass participation of poor rural dwellers in the poverty reduction and growth promoting development, thereby empowering the rural people to be at the driver's seat to improve access to social and natural resources infrastructure services.

Following the success story of the parent CSDP 2009 - 2013, the Federal Government of Nigeria sought assistance from the World Bank towards implementation of CSDP Additional Financing. The overwhelming success stories recorded by the project across the poor rural communities of the country gave rise to this noble request.

The CSDP Additional Finance which commenced in 2016 provided the opportunity to extend the project to a new closing date of June 2020, which has hitherto been adjusted till September 2020 due to disruption created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Governor of Ekiti State and the Chairman of the Governors'Forum, Dr. Kayode Fayemi at a state ceremony presented Cheques to some benefiting communities for self-help projects, described CSDP as a huge success in the state. He said:
"With its positive impact across the 16 Local government Areas of the State, its easy to say that CSDP has become a veritable tool in poverty alleviation with respect to improvement in human capacity, physical and social infrastructural development."

"The successful outcomes through the financing of social economic and natural resource common goods, as well as upward and downward accountability between communities, LGAs and State Agencies are some of the greatest achievements of the project which has made it a huge success story in Ekiti State and Nigeria as a whole."

The governor reiterated that building on previous success storyline as encapsulated in the project's Community Driven Development (CDD) approach, has helped many communities to record additional success stories across the length and breadth of Ekiti State under the CSDP Additional Financing.

The governor said further that the participatory approach mechanism adopted by the Project has made it achieve more success stories than any other development program in the state over the last decade.  One thing that is unique about CSDP is its promotion of the use of participatory planning, budgeting, implementation and monitoring process. This approach clearly provides the best opportunity for communities to choose their projects, implement them and take proper onership of the projects,"Fayemi said. 

For over a decade, CSDP in Ekiti has assisted communities to fund their heartfelt needs with micro projects in Education, Health, Rural Electrification, Transport, Water, Socio-Economic, Environment/Natural Resource and Gender & Vulnerable Groups (GVG)

CSDP Enugu Road Intervention

CSDP Enugu Road Intervention

Opens Infrastructure Development, Housing and Access to Farmlands

Jul 29, 2020 105 Views 0 Comments FacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogle Plus

Umuhu, Eha-Amufu community in Isi-Uzo Local Government of Enugu State had for a long time endured the challenges of single narrow bad road. This only road connects the five villages of the community, thereby restricting expansion in terms of infrastructural development, housing and access to farmlands.

The above narrative has changed as the community has heaved a sigh of relief following the timely intervention of CSDP Enugu through a counterpart fund of N9M after a need assessment of the community. In February, 2020 the community embarked on the construction of a new earth road with two culverts and line drains. This intervention by CSDP spurred the community into action and this collaboration led to the successful completion of the 2.2km earth road, leading from the Eha-Amufu/Nkalagu federation road to Akpaka village of the community.

The people are most grateful to the Agency, not just for the intervention but for the due diligence in planning, monitoring and supervision of the project. Only such could have ensured prudent management of funds exhibited by the community project Management committee (CPMC) and the utilization of available fund for the execution of the huge and laudable road project.

There is no gain saying the fact that the community has entered a new phase with the new road. This is as different shades of development are already ongoing following the road construction. Lands within the areas of the road are being laid out and surveyed. One or two villages are already extending the road to link their ancestral and farm settlements.

As the community relish over this laudable intervention by the CSDP, they emphasized the need for further interventions in the areas of roads and other development projects.

As CSDP deepends penetration in rural communities

Jul 26, 2020 86 Views 0 Comments FacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogle Plus

The water situation of Ikpe Ikot Ntuen is not different from most rural communities in Nigeria, but through the intervention of Akwa Ibom State CSDP, both men and women, boys and girls have access to safe drinking water.

The motorized Borehole micro project initiated and part financed by Ikpe Ikot Ntuen community was achieved at the cost of N1, 925,000.00. This amount covers cost of geophysical survey, drilling, building of perimeter fence, generator house, concrete tank stand and a generator.

To man and operate the facility at Ikpe Ikot Ntuen motorized borehole is a young Nsikak Aniefiok Akpan, a Junior Secondary Pupil of Comprehensive Secondary School Ikpe Anang, Essien Udim LGA.  Nsikak , before going to school, opens the facility as early as 5.00 am, attends to community members who come for water and  he is diligent in collecting and  keeping records of sales of water. At the end of the day, he hands over the water proceeds to the community project committee. 

According to Otobong Isaiah Ekanem a community member, the benefit of having safe drinking within a walking distance in the community far outweighs the N5.00 user fee charged per 20 litres. ‘we as community agreed on the amount, this is to ensure that the borehole serves us, the money is for maintenance and buying of fuel to pump water’ he hinted smiling.
