Brazil - Northeast Rural Poverty Alleviation Program : Rural Poverty Alleviation Project Sergipe (English)

The objective of the Sergipe Rural Poverty Alleviation project is to assist the State in alleviating rural poverty and its consequences by: 1) providing basic infrastructure and employment and income-generating opportunities for the rural poor; 2) supporting rural community groups in planning and implementing their own subprojects; 3) providing a safety net for the rural poor during a period of strong fiscal adjustment when the Government's ability to finance essential investments and services is constrained; and 4) leveraging revenue mobilization at the community and municipal levels. The project will ensure that funds are targeted and reliably transferred to the poorest communities, and will promote further decentralization of decision-making to State, municipal and local levels. The project comprises three components: community subprojects supporting infrastrture, social, and productive small-scale industrial investments; institutional development providing technical assistance and training to increase capacity and improve implementation of the project; and project administration, monitoring and evaluation.
