Poverty Alleviation

The BRDB was initially mandated to foster agricultural growth and reach self-sufficient food production. With the tremendous success of this approach (food production doubled within fifteen years from the early 1970s and the country reached near self-sufficient levels of production) the BRDB continued to focus its development efforts on those with production capabilities – that is, small and marginal farmers.

However, as it became clear that this approach to development largely neglected landless and ‘assetless’ people and that the socio-economic condition of such people was in fact continuing to worsen, the BRDB renewed its policies and placed the development of the rural poor at the top of its priorities.

By shifting its strategy and expanding its activities, the BRDB was able to couple its efforts to improve agricultural production with the active promotion of self-employment and income generating activities.

To this day, the BRDB places equal value on both the provision of financial and technological inputs and skills development, through training and education. With this approach, the BRDB continues to promote improvements in agricultural production and provide those with no means of production with opportunities to improve their standards of living.

As well as providing assistance to farmers and the rural poor, BRDB is implementing poverty reduction program for the Insolvent Freedom Fighters and their dependents.
