IMPACT OF COMMUNITY DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT PROJECT : A CASE STUDY CSDP

Abstract

This study on Evaluation of Community and Social Development Projects (CSDP) Performance in North Central Nigeria was carried out in three states in North Central Nigeria. Multistage sampling technique and a sample size of 418 respondents was selected for the study. Data for the study were collected from primary sources. Primary data were collected through a well-structured questionnaire. Descriptive statistics, such as frequency distribution, percentages and mean scores were used to analyze socioeconomic characteristic of the participants and access to CSDP project. The ordinal regression model of factors influencing performance of CSDP project indicates a good fit of the model to the data. Specifically the fit of the model with predictor variables was better compared to the intercept only model (x = 243.86; p<0.01). This implies that the explanatory variables in the model jointly and significantly influenced performance of CSDP project, specifically, the model shows that only the variable, CSDP staff ensuring transparency and accountability in the management of project funds significantly influence the probability of high performance of CSDP. It was concluded that CSDP project has significantly affected the rural communities in north central, Nigeria
