Introduction to LACIP

The program “Livelihood Support & Promotion of Small Community Infrastructure Project” (LACIP) is co-financed by the Federal Republic of Germany through KfW. The total Project cost is 31.5 Million Euros and will be executed by Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) over a period of three years. It aims to reduce the poverty levels by increasing economic opportunities in the project region. The project is mandated to work in Institutional Development as a foundation and create an integrated approach towards development using the components of Small and Medium Scale Infrastructure (SMI), Livelihood Enhancement & Protection (LEP), Health & Education (H&E) and Disaster Preparedness and Mitigation (DPM) in the 7 selected districts (Chitral, Buner, Swabi, Charsadda, D.I. Khan Haripur and Nowshera) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Small and Medium Scale Infrastructure will respond to the community’s basic needs and demands following the Community Driven Development approach. In total, approximately 2,350 CPI schemes (2000 conventional and 350 innovative) will be implemented through the Project in the 6 target Districts. Livelihood support is a major component in the Project. It will work towards the setting up of 7000 units of livelihood support, and provide asset and business management trainings to the beneficiaries in the 6 Districts. Through the Health and Education (H&E) component, support would be provided to villages with existing health or education facilities operated by the government or community organizations requiring physical and functional improvements. Disaster Preparedness and Mitigation (DPM) is vital to the Project, not only to mainstream DRR in the small and medium scale infrastructure schemes but also to enhance capacities of the communities to prepare for and cope with likely disasters.

#Creation of District Development Forums

Future Plans

#LACIP Coordination meetings with Mr. Pervez Khattak Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

The rationale of District development forums in LACIP is to create ownership to ensure sustainability of the small community projects undertaken by community organizations partnering with PPAF. This concept will be applied to all the Districts under LACIP. The possible actors involved in DDF is the local government, line departments and civil society organizations (CSOs), Local support organizations (LSOs) and Partner Organizations of PPAF. DDF constituted at the District level, will hold its meetings chaired by the Deputy Commissioner on quarterly basis to discuss the local felt needs of the Project area and issues faced by POs and CSOs. The MoUs of Collaborative Partnerships will also be signed with Provincial Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Provincial Bar Council

Coordination meetings with Chief Minister Mr. Pervez Khattak carried out by LACIP GM Mr. Masood Khalid. LACIP will initiate a poverty reduction cell at the Union Council level and link it with District development forum meetings held quarterly. A Union Council based network will be created in which Presidents of various institutions of Academia, the media and the Bar, civil society organizations will take part in and the DCO will chair the meetings. The ultimate goal is make the Union Councils a part of the Annual Development Plan next year.

#Initiating Union Council Level Resource Centers
The Union Council development organizations (UCDOs) will hold their activities at Resource Centers at the Union Council level. Resource centers will be cost effectively created as existing buildings such as those of Basic Health Units will be used. These Resource centers will also act as Mobile Courts where Judges will be asked to hear all Union Council legal cases and bring swift justice for communities. These centers will also be used for Disaster Risk Reduction cell units where equipment and personnel will be placed for the communities assistance and information.
