The Development Caravan model is a synchronised poverty eradication system for local communities in nodal areas to mobilise support and catalyse community self-organisation through targeting families with a basket of services and stakeholder engagement. The Development Caravan presents a multi-dimensional view of poverty. In particular, it underscores the importance of civil society participation (amplifying poor people’s voices) in policy formulation and implementation, capacity building and institutional strengthening. This booklet aims to share the framework of the Development Caravan as a strategy for intergenerational poverty eradication, to analyse the role and great efforts made by civil society as catalysts and intermediaries between local communities and government, and to highlight potential practical implications of this role to practitioners and funders who support the work of civil society.
