Community Driven Local Development Policy (CDLD)

Goal and Objectives of CDLD Policy

SRSP is supporting the Govt of KP to achieve sustainable improvement in coverage and quality of public service delivery through active involvement of local communities. This project is supported by European Union (EU). EU is providing 64 Million Euro budgetary support to Govt of KP. The Govt of KP contribution is Rs 500 Million for the year 2014/15.  

CDLD is implemented on pilot basis in six districts (Chitral, Dir upper, Dir Lower Malakand, Shangla & Swat) of Malakand Division.
