Well-being and Livelihoods

The success of sustainable livelihood interventions is critically dependent on well-functioning institutional platforms of the poor and marginalised. The centre envisages several programmes and tasks to strengthen the support structures and institutions for the poor and marginalised in India and other countries, and to catalyse communitisation by playing the stewardship role in the transformational process. The activities of this centre will revolve broadly around themes like Participatory Governance and Management of Natural Resources; Primary Health Care, Child Nutrition and Protection; Drinking Water and Sanitation; access to Education; Skills for wage and self-employment; access to Financial and Information services; and enhancing productivity of Farm and Non-Farm activities
