            Poverty, either as a plague or cause of other specific under development ailments, afflicts Nigeria as it does other Nations of the World. The high level of prevalence in the country, which has attained an endemic nature is becoming worrisome. Poverty has made Nigeria to attain an unenviable status such that no Government (no matter the level), Organisation, Community, Clan or Family can survive effectively without introducing one kind of poverty reduction effort or the other. This problem is essentially not that of programme introduction but effectiveness of such programme and strategies so adapted in poverty reduction efforts. Nigeria has not been known to lack in such efforts. This study therefore is based on the impact of Donor Agencies effort on poverty reduction in Birnin Kebbi especially in relation to the policy and strategy formulation, implementation, coordination, monitoring, control and review, sourcing and utilisation of resources both human and material and complementarity of programmes. The study also focused on the impact of the past and strategies and programmes on the target poor. In the course of the study, related literature on poverty and poverty reduction efforts strategies and programmes were intensively and extensively reviewed and relevant information and ideas obtained for the research. The study also utilised the survey approach and assumptions to collect, collate, analyse and present data respectively in its findings which include: poverty is multi-dimensional in nature and must be treated in order to be effective; Most Donor Agencies and Government activities are poverty reduction-based; poverty reduction programmes have not been effective; and reasons for non-effectiveness were adduced. Based on the above findings and conclusions, recommendations, were made towards poverty reduction efforts in Birnin Kebbi as well as Nigeria as a whole, Government, Donor Agencies and other stakeholders should develop a multidimensional approach towards poverty reduction efforts or strategies and implement along that line, efforts should be made to effectively target the poor in all considerations and at all levels of articulation, implementation, and review; the government anti-poverty reduction efforts should be stepped up and seriously up-held in dealing with matters concerning poverty reduction efforts so as to achieve the SDGs 2030.
