Jharkhand-Chhattisgarh Tribal Development Programme

Supervised directly by IFAD, the programme focuses on tribal people in Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh, two of the states that have the highest proportion of tribal people, who are among the poorest people in India.
It targets marginal households, women, landless people, hill cultivators and tribal people. The goal is to empower tribal people to participate in their own development through local self-government. Specific activities promote increased production and productivity of land and water resources, alternative sources of income and sustainable management of natural resources.
Among the project’s innovative features are autonomous tribal development societies, a fund for legal defence of tribal people’s rights, and watershed management as part of an overall approach towards protecting and managing natural resources.
