The Members of Parliament Local Area Development Schemes (MPLADS) funding opportunity exploration enables Members of Parliament (MP’s) provision of development-related works based on the local needs of their constituencies. This is project scheme is aimed at supporting ambitious MPs privately with emphasis on the creation of durable projects according to their priority such as drinking water, sanitation, among others depending on the available funding each year.
‘One MP – One Idea’
This scheme recognizes the need to foster innovation and development for addressing local requirements and arriving at sustainable and scalable solutions. In order to do so, the guidelines suggest the ‘One MP-One Idea’ assistance to seek ideas that have the potential to solve challenges.
Based on innovative ideas received from local residents regarding development projects, three best innovations are selected for project appraisal using the ‘SMART method approach’.
Each Idea should be:
Specific (simple, sensible, significant).
Measurable (meaningful, motivating).
Achievable (agreed, attainable).
Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based).
Time bound (time-based, time limited, time/cost limited, timely, time sensitive).
The scheme focuses on the areas of informal education,skilldevelopment,waterandsanitation,agriculture,environment,communityandsocialservice,amongothers.
In order to ensure a streamlined monitoring mechanism, the MPLADS guidelines have listed ten priority sectors under which projects can be initiated. They further provide an indicative list of works under each priority sector. However, the list is not exhaustive in nature and the MPs can take up any work, as long as it meets the central objective of the scheme and is not prohibited under the guidelines.
