The overall purpose of the program was to improve livelihoods for poor and vulnerable women, men and children living within these areas through increased food security and raised income levels. Maxwell Stamp’s roles included establishment and implementation of an overall program strategy and operating plan, and devising and operating high quality management arrangements for all program activities.
Maxwell Stamp implemented both the Phase 1 and 2 of CLP with the following main components:
- Providing infrastructure, primarily in the areas of flood protection, sanitation and clean water supply.
- Asset building and livelihoods interventions aimed at the poorest island char dwellers, based around the provision of income generating assets.
- Encouraging social development, with group interactions and exposure to important topics in health, sanitation, disaster preparedness and social rights and responsibilities.
- Offering social protection through ‘cash-for-work,’ monthly stipends to the poorest households and the development of community safety-nets.
- Promoting enterprise that facilitates growth in agricultural and non-farm sectors and also supports the development of key growth-related services, in particular microfinance and livestock services.
- With £120 million in grant funding, the CLP was the largest project in DFID-Bangladesh’s portfolio of activities to address extreme poverty in Bangladesh and contribute to achieving the First Millennium Development Goal.
