Around 45,000 more poor and marginal families are expected to become self-reliant through an anti-poverty project in the city within next six years.

Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) will implement the project titled ‘Livelihoods Improvement of Urban Poor Communities (LIUPC)’ in cooperation with United Nations Development Program (UNDP). RCC Executive Engineer and Member Secretary of the project Nur Islam revealed this while giving an overview of the project in a view-sharing meeting with all stakeholders at city Bhaban conference hall yesterday afternoon. Chaired by RCC Mayor AHM Khairuzzaman Liton, the meeting was addressed, among others, by Panel Mayor Shariful Islam Babu, Ward Councilor Nizam-Ul- Azim, Chief Executive Officer Shawgatul Alam, social worker Ariful Islam and former principal of Shahmukhdum Degree College Prof Aminur Rahman.

Engineer Islam said the LIUPC project is intended to achieve long-term sustainable growth by eradicating urban poverty and achieving Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The project has been designed to reach initially the unserved and underserved urban population in the city and to promote livelihoods and living conditions of 1.80 lakh poor people living in urban areas.

Through the savings and credit programmes, the communities now can operate their own savings schemes and create a revolving fund from which

credit operations are being managed driving out their poverty, added Engineer Islam.
