A Participatory Poverty Assessment (PPA) was launched in 2004 as part of
the Democratic Republic of Congo’s efforts to create a national ‘Poverty
Reduction Strategy Paper’ (PRSP). Because the PPA’s coverage was one of
the DRC’s most extensive survey efforts - including all eleven
provinces, 94 of its 95 territories, 470 local sites, and involving more
than 35,750 people and groups in a participatory analysis of poverty -
the PPA information is now an important national resource.
Designed for policy and program use, this PPA Report aims to ensure that
the government can effectively hear and act on the voices of the Congo
