Andhra Pradesh Participatory Tribal Development Project

Andhra Pradesh Participatory Tribal Development Project


The objectives of this project, which was cofinanced by IFAD and the Government of the Netherlands, were to improve incomes, food security and living conditions within a traditional tribal context, to promote women’s self-reliance and to reduce and reverse environmental degradation. The project introduced several innovations:

  • participatory implementation that involved communities directly in small-scale construction activities
  • participation and empowerment through self-help groups and a federation of groups
  • introduction of village liaison workers to help people create savings and credit groups
  • a participatory approach to health and education services
  • value-added harvesting and marketing approaches to non-timber forest products
