As part of the German Development Cooperation (GDC), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) cooperates with the SADC Secretariat Policy Planning and Resource Mobilisation (PPRM) directorate to drive SADC’s objective to reduce poverty in the region through economic growth as well as peace, democracy and stability
Poverty eradication and improvement of the well-being of the people of the SADC region through regional integration and cooperation remain the ultimate goal for the SADC region. Nevertheless, presently, there is not a system in place that sustainably tracks the impact of poverty eradication programmes at regional level. Member States have their own respective programmes and initiatives to mitigate the impact of poverty. The objective of the present assignment is hence to develop a harmonized approach to define and measure poverty in the SADC region, based on the assessment of the SADC Member States’ respective approaches.
