|FATA Local Area Development Programme|
In 2007 the FATA Civil Secretariat Developed the FATA Sustainable Development Plan in which the SRSP was envisaged as an important implementing partner of the strategy for the involvement of civil society in the development process in FATA. Two briefings were organized for the Governor of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in 2007 in which the Chief Secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the Additional Secretary FATA and Mr Shoaib Sultan Khan participated to discuss the extension of the Rural Support Programmes to FATA. A unit was established within SRSP to accomplish this.
In 2007 the Governor of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa approved a grant of Rs 200 million for extension of Rural Support Programmes to FATA.
