Abstract: Abstract Of the goals of sustainable development (SD), human capital and poverty reduction are seen as the means and end. As they combine to shape other goals, they are equally the targets. However, how the synergy responds to the overall Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cannot be divorced from the former’s processes and government commitment. This underscores centrality of human capital (HC) to achievement of poverty reduction and food security priorities. This paper assesses HC development practice and utilisation process. Focus group discussion and in-depth interviews used give our findings empirical underpinnings. This study reveals that the most critical HC aspect has been consistently neglected in empowerment scheme of Ebonyi state government.
