The GLLSP II’s theory of change is informed by the GLLSP I’s successful interventions in poverty reduction and rural development as well as lessons learnt, in particular regarding fisheries infrastructure and value chain development. The development challenge is to sustainably improve incomes and reduce poverty among the smallholder farmers and fisherfolk, with a gender, youth and climate sensitive approach, in the project area. At project completion, the project outcomes aimed at are: zero 0-11 (ultra-poor) households in the project area and 60 per cent of 12-40 households graduate to the next band of economic well-being; all priority community infrastructure needs, particularly water security, are addressed and all main fisheries and agriculture production areas are linked by roads to the main CPEC/national highway network; the registered fisherfolk reduce their waste by 30 per cent and improve their incomes by 50 per cent through better capacities, a well-functioning value chain and

support landing site infrastructure; and rural Union councils and villages have guaranteed access to government’s annual development funding for sustained development.
