Project description


The goal of PRODIA I, II and III (Programa de Desenvolvimento Integrado para as Autarquias e as zonas rurais circunjacentes) is to contribute to poverty reduction through more effective and transparent provision of municipal services (good local governance).

During the implementation phase, these plans will include more detailed technical planning of the planned infrastructure investments and their maintenance.
The project goals are:
  1. to reduce poverty,
