Livelihood Security Project for Earthquake-Affected Rural Households in Gujarat

Livelihood Security Project for Earthquake-Affected Rural Households in Gujarat

 

By targeting 200,000 households in 400 villages affected by a January 2001 earthquake, this IFAD-initiated project helps rural poor people develop strategies to cope with natural disasters and achieve greater livelihood security. Activities include assisting villagers in building wells and rainwater harvesting tanks and reconstructing village ponds.

As more groundwater in the area becomes unusable and agricultural production declines, the project encourages villagers to diversify their sources of livelihood through farm and non-farm activities such as crafts, gum collection and salt production. Promoting access to microfinance, including insurance and credit, is a key feature of the project, as is introducing earthquake-resistant construction and improved health services for women.
