Population Coverage

Given DAM’s institutional mandate, disadvantaged and underprivileged people will continue to be primary groups with which DAM will work. Such groups will include people living in poverty, minorities groups, new migrants in urban area, environmental migrants, and people with disabilities. Considering population dynamics and current socio-economic development trend, the major concentration will be on children, youths and adolescents across different income groups, women, and people with disability and marginalised groups of people. The third level of concentration will be on older people, and disaster and climate change affected population.
