The long-term goal of the JFPR Project is to contribute to the reduction of human, economic and social poverty among the vulnerable poor who were displaced by river erosion, became landless, and settled in riverine fringe areas. Its specific objective is to pilot and establish a community-based self-help mechanism of social development for the informal settlers living on and around the flood embankments and other landless people wtihin JMREMP subproject areas. Aimed at core poverty reduction, the Project will (i) create permanent employment opportunities, such as nursery development and social forestry, fish culture and livestock development, with the effective use of existing water management facilities (including their lands and water bodies), and (ii) develop the organizational , institutional and leadership capacities among the poor through community mobilization and organizing, networking, and by establishing self-managed Information and Resource Centers (IRCs) in the subproject areas.
