dc.descriptionThe ultimate goal of the study was to improve the quality of life in a region where, in spite of rich natural resources, large numbers of people still live in poverty. The Project was to carry out a fundamental assessment of the Delta region, its people, its economy, its social system, its local government capacities, and its regional infrastructure. From the very first, the intent of the study was to go beyond a mere description of the Mississippi Delta; it was also to point toward courses of action that would lead to the improvement of the Delta region.en_US
