The Upper and Middle Guinea Sustainable Social Development Project - Phase II (PDSD II) is a continuation of the overall PDSD I objective which is to reduce poverty in Guinea by promoting and developing entrepreneurship, creating jobs and strengthening local governance. Phase II of the Project will cover three natural regions (two from Phase I, i.e. Upper and Middle Guinea, and activities extended to the Forest Region, especially in areas hosting voluntarily demobilized ex-combatants). This phase is meant to consolidate outputs and prepare tools and mechanisms for establishing the Economic and Social Development Fund (ESDF), the instrument adopted to sustain the outputs of PDSD Phase I. In the medium term, it aims to: (i) improve poor people’s access to basic socio-economic services; and (ii) develop the productive capacity of the poor, particularly women, youth and voluntarily demobilized excombatants by developing IGAs. The implementation period is 24 months, from January 2011 to December 2012.
PDSD II aims to reduce poverty in Guinea by promoting and developing entrepreneurship, creating jobs and strengthening local governance. The Project’s specific objectives are the following: (i) increase poor people’s access to basic socio-economic services; and (ii) build the productive capacity of the poor, particularly those of women, youth and ex-combatants, by developing IGAs.
The target population is about 1,225,000 or 10% of the national population, nearly 852,500 of them from PDSD I and 372,500 from the Forest Region. Project operations will directly concern 60,000 income-generating activities, 150 SMEs/SMIs, 210 local authorities including 11 urban districts (UD) and 72 rural development communities (RDC), about 350 socio-economic infrastructure management committees (MC) in the Forest, Upper and Middle Regions, about 400 relay structures and village development agents, and 44 financial services associations (FSA).
