Project Description

The objective of this survey was to assess the immediate impact of Community Physical Infrastructure Projects (CPIs) implemented by the Rural Support Programmes (RSPs), as part of their holistic social mobilization approach to improve rural livelihoods and reduce poverty.  The survey provided the decision makers with information to help improve the design and implementation of the community infrastructure projects in as short a time as possible.
