The dureation of this project is March 2018. Program for Poverty Reduction through Rural Development in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, FATA and Neighboring Districts/Program for Poverty Reduction/PPR is a three year programme financed by the Government of Italy (GoI) through the Directorate General for Development Cooperation (DGCS) and the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation/AICS. Initially, the programme duration was from September 2013 to September 2016. However, the programme could not be started in time because of a number of reasons such as strategic shift in the programme, delay in seeking NOC by some of the POs, precarious and volatile security situation in some of the target conflict affected areas. Considering all these challenges, the programme has been extended till September 2018. The programme focuses on contributing to reducing poverty in selected districts of Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Area. Being situated at the border of Afghanistan the programme areas are amongst the most vulnerable and underserved areas of the country which suffer from extreme poverty, as well as face severe security issues. The total Italian financial contribution is EUR 40 million, through a soft loan framework agreement
