Andhra Pradesh Tribal Development Project

Andhra Pradesh Tribal Development Project


To foster self-reliant household food security, this project aimed to increase food production and raise the incomes of tribal families in four districts in the state of Andhra Pradesh, while pursuing a community-based participatory and cooperative approach. The project focused on community and women’s development, health care, education and natural resource development. It provided support for credit, marketing and project management.

As a result of project activities in the context of natural resource management, more than 26,000 farmers were able to halt soil erosion on their land. Dams and drains reduced environmental degradation, and irrigation facilities led to increased food security and reduced farm-labour costs. More than 27,000 acres were planted, and demonstration plots were created as part of training activities.
