Website CsprZambia Civil Society for Poverty Reduction (CSPR)

The Civil Society for Poverty Reduction (CSPR) is a civil society network of 72 members that has been building the voice for poor in the fight against poverty. It was established in 2000, primarily to ensure that civil society effectively and meaningfully participates in the design, formulation and implementation of the NDPs and further monitor the NDPs to ensure government provides a means by which Zambia can effectively strategize on reducing the escalating levels of poverty. Since the third quarter of 2000, and in response to an invitation from the Government of Republic of Zambia, the civil society in Zambia has been participating in the process of formulating and monitoring the NDP for the country, and hence sought the need to form a network that would enhance the effectiveness of this participation.

CSPR has four major programmes that includes Resource Governance, Economic Empowerment & Sustainable Livelihoods, Coalition Building and Networking, Advocacy and Communication and Institutional Development & Sustainability.

CSPR is guided by a strategic vision which states that “Zambia where citizens are pro-poor development through coordination of network member efforts, evidence-based policy engagement and community participation in order to reduce poverty in Zambia”.
