A poverty assessment of Market Development (MADE) in the Niger Delta Programme and the Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND) was initiated in May 2018 to establish a deeper understanding of the characteristics of poverty in the Niger Delta, taking samples from the seven value chains.
Analysis was carried out on MADE and PIND interventions in:
- palm oil
And specifically for MADE:
- agricultural inputs
- leather and poultry
And for PIND:
- business linkages.
The assessment also provided an opportunity to develop relevant classifications of programme participants to distinguish different levels of poverty.
