Livelihoods and Access to Markets Project

LAMP has been designed to be fully aligned and integrated with state government plans for river basin development in Meghalaya. The project will directly support the strategic objectives of the results-based country strategic opportunities programme (RB-COSOP):

  • increased access to agricultural technologies and natural resources
  • increased access to financial services and value chains.
The project is designed to cover the entire State of Meghalaya, with enterprise facilitation centres (EFCs) in all of its 39 blocks (subdistricts) supporting around 47,400 enterprises over the eight-year project period. A total of 54 clusters for development of natural resources, food security and marketable crops will be established in 18 blocks, with about 75 villages (about half of all villages) in each block, making a total of 1,350 villages.
The project’s target groups will include tribal communities, which form nearly the total population to be covered by the project; women, particularly those in remote areas; rural young people; and households living below the poverty line within selected areas. The project will adopt specific targeting strategies for each of these groups to ensure that those most vulnerable and marginalized are not left out of project coverage.
