The overall programme is made up of six thematic components and three cross-cutting issues. PKSF, as the core implementing partner of the project, will implement Livelihood, Nutrition and Community Mobilization components through its selected Partner Organizations (POs). The three other components of the project—Market Development, Policy Advocacy and Life Cycle Grant Pilot—are to be implemented by other stakeholders of PPEPP. Three thematic areas which will be addressed as cross-cutting issues: Disaster and Climate Resilience, Disability and Women’s Empowerment Leading Gender Equality.

Disaster and Climate Resilience: Based on available evidence and planned geographical focus, 75% of targeted households are at a high risk of current and future climate shocks. All of the livelihood and market development support and linked transfers of PPEPP are eligible for climate finance as these provide the basic economic and social foundation for extremely poor people to adapt to a changing climate. A more flexible menu of livelihoods assistance will also be able to provide support for migration in those cases where prospects for livelihood and economic development in situ are untenable.
