National Solidarity Program II

Our Goal

The Development Objective of the Project was to lay the foundations for strengthening of community level governance, and to support community-managed sub-projects that improve access of rural communities to social and productive infrastructure and services

How We Deliver

The NSP II Program provided continued support to the 17,222 communities mobilized under NSP I and reaching out to an estimated additional 4,318 new villages, the NSP II aimed to: (i) establish a framework for village level consultative decision-making and representative local leadership as a basis for interaction within and between communities on the one hand, and with the administration and aid agencies on the other; (ii) implement social and economic productive activities addressing the basic village needs; and (iii) develop human capital and livelihood, which would improve household welfare.


These goals were achieved through 4 components:

i) Provision of block grants to local communities to carry out sub-projects involving reconstruction and development activities through a facilitated participatory planning process. These activities focused on community-based productive and social infrastructure such as irrigation works, roads, water supply facilities, micro-hydropower, and school buildings;

ii) Supporting local communities through facilitation exercises to establish inclusive community institutions and identify local development needs and priorities; and assistance for preparing sub-project proposals;

iii) Strengthening the capacity of CDCs to implement sub-projects; and, building the capacity of members of local communities, through provision of training and technical advisory services in procurement, financial management and technical skills;

iv) Capacity building and provision of implementation support to MRRD, through the provision of consultants’ services, equipment, operating costs and training in financial management, procurement and technical skills.
