In line with the development of Community Driven Development Policy, a key deliverable of the Community and Social Development Project, the Federal Project Support Unit has organized a 2_ day meeting with Stakeholders on Community Driven Development (CDD) Policy in Nigeria for stakeholders of the CSDP participating States
In Nigeria, the philosophy of people’s participation in community development is increasingly gaining acceptance as an important instrument for mobilising resources, indigenous knowledge, skills and capacities to address the challenges of poverty and improved welfare for the poor. Experience has shown that policies aimed at promoting inclusive growth and development designed as a supply driven paradigm are insufficient for poverty reduction and sustainable development. The global paradigm shift gaining currency especially among developing and middle level income countries is that people living in poor communities are strategically best placed to identify and proffer solutions to their development needs, they are more conversant with the gaps, priorities and best fitted solutions to address them. Community-Driven Development (CDD) approach, therefore, offers the opportunity to fill these critical gaps and also achieve sustainable development, especially at the grass-roots level.
CDD helps in poverty reduction by promoting the principles of sustainability, community ownership, popular participation, efficiency and value for money. All these have led to accelerated socio-economic development of the poor, inclusive and responsive growth and development, empowerment of the poor and vulnerable citizens, building social capital and trust, strengthened governance in poor communities, improved accountability, transparency and reduced the cases of abandoned projects.
The stakeholders invited from the participating states were representatives of State Government, the General Managers, Local Government representative, Community Development Association Chairmen and the CSOs.
"The policy document is expected to serve as a guide and strategic resource for all actors in the CDD interventions in Nigeria."
