Adam Adem Anyebe, Ibrahim Kurfi Mudi


This study attempts to reflect on the implementation of the Second National Fadama Project in Kaduna and Katsina states of Nigeria with a view to assessing whether the project implementation has been effective in reducing poverty among the participating communities. It was therefore, hypothesized that there is no significant relationship between the Community-Driven Development Strategy and effective implementation of Fadama II project in the area of access to rural financial services and poverty reduction in the host communities. The primary data were obtained through the use of questionnaire and personal interview while secondary data were sourced from books, journals, unpublished materials and internet. The study showed that there is a significant relationship between Community-Driven Development and effective implementation of the project in the host communities. The research recommended that to enhance the success of future projects, the government should not interfere with the activities of such projects, especially in the selection of members of such associations and government should provide loan facilities to the beneficiaries in order to boost their assets acquisition capacity.
