Jamaica Urban Poverty Project

The Department for International Development (DFID) supported the Jamaica Urban Poverty Project (JUPP) in 1995 and continued through to year 2000. The purpose of the project was “to develop and implement urban poverty initiatives that would respond better to the needs of women, men and children, which could be replicated in other urban areas, and which would influence wider urban policies in Jamaica”.

The JUPP had quite a number of successes; the project team reported that approximately 79,000 had benefited either directly or indirectly from the project.
