The Rehabilitation and Community-Based Poverty Reduction Project is a relief operation aimed at restoring the pre-war living and production standards of farming communities in the districts most affected by the civil war in Sierra Leone. The IFAD-financed project is twinned with the Agricultural Sector Rehabilitation Project funded by the Bank. It aims to take rapid action to assist communities as part of a broader regeneration process. The project is articulated around the following activities: (i) support and empowerment of community institutions and promotion of participatory development; (ii) empowering the poor by enabling them to more easily access and control core assets such as capital, knowledge and technology; (iii) rehabilitation of rural infrastructure to improve production conditions, access to markets and living conditions.
The project has the aim of improving the livelihoods and living conditions of rural communities in general and of the most vulnerable rural households and particularly those headed by women. The objective is to help poor displaced farmers, households headed by war widows and other women, youth and former combatants, sexually abused young women and single mothers, and vulnerable children and disabled people.
Beneficiaries are smallholders of crops and livestock, community institutions and groups whose capacity will be strengthened to play an active and participatory role in their own development.
