    LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT AND STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY ORGANISATION

    The LIUPCP adopts a tried and proven approach to community development. Urban programming (most especially through UPPR) has demonstrated: a) how community-based organisation structures and community-led poverty alleviation measures, can provide evidenced based reduction in levels of poverty, and b) ensure that the extreme poor are effectively targeted. Women will lead much of the activity under this component.
