Abstract:

The Aga Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP) was conceived as a new approach to fostering the development of rural people. It was established and is run by the Aga Khan Foundation with the support of numerous donor agencies. The purpose of the program is, first, to involve the people of the three districts in which it operates in their own development, and second, to provide a model of rural development applicable in other settings. This second interim evaluation is an integral part of the process, permitting an independent judgement on achievements by AKRSP with respect to both objectives. The AKSRP continues to be a successful rural development program. It is achieving this success in areas which possess many of the characteristics that are common to rural poverty : physical remoteness, poor infrastructure, and a restricted or declining resource base. The number of households benefiting from village organization membership and from productive physical infrastructure implementation had risen to 53,000 by mid 1989. This represents 54 percent of the total rural households in the Northern Areas. At a time when rural development as a development strategy is out of favor, the AKSRP experience provides a hopeful prospect that rural development can be made to work, given halfway favorable circumstance.
