Integrated Livelihood Support Project

This project will support poverty reduction in Uttarakhand, a predominantly rural hill state, by promoting sustainable livelihood opportunities for 143,400 rural households. Priority target groups include small rural producers, women, scheduled-caste households and young people.

The food-security component of the project will support crop and livestock production, higher-value cash crops and other forms of economic development products – such as rural tourism – to provide cash incomes.

Additional project components include:

  • participatory watershed development using processes that have been established through a series of development projects in the state
  • financing of livelihoods through social-venture capital invested in rural enterprises
  • coordination and monitoring, with individual project management units and project directors at the partner agencies implementing each component.

The project will also support vocational training linked to job placement, with a target of 10,000 training slots, to improve access to employment in the non-farm sector.
