Abstract

The planning and development of Agropolitan Project in Malaysia began in 2007 and was aimed at eradicating extreme poverty in Malaysia. This study aims to discuss the design and construction of Agropolitan Project in eradicating extreme poverty among its participants. This study uses the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) found in the 11th Malaysian Plan, which includes the dimension of education, health, living standards, and earning. In addition, this study utilizes a survey involving 45 participants of an agropolitan project from Gahai, Lipis, Pahang. The result shows that only 5 of the respondents fall into the multidimensional poverty category, which involves 11.9 percent of the household members. The result of this study shows that the planning and development of Gahai Agropolitan Project, Lipis has succeeded in eradicating extreme poverty among the project participants. Deprivation faced by the respondents based on the MPI analysis can help policy makers in the design and construction of future agropolitan projects.
