• Organizing: The poor need to organize for collective strength and bargaining power and to be able to actively participate at various levels in the planning, implementation and monitoring processes of the programmes meant for them.
  • Capacity building: To stand firm in the competitive market, the poor need to build up their skills, through access to market infrastructure, access to technology, information, education, knowledge and relevant training (accountancy, management, planning, designing, etc.)
  • Capital formation: Asset ownership is the surest way to fight the vulnerability of poverty. The poor need to create and build up assets of their own at the household level through access to financial services (savings, insurance and credit).
  • Social security: To combat the chronic risks faced by them and their families, the poor need healthcare, childcare, shelter and relief.
